This is such an easy to make top, with just a few techniques to learn or use such as picking up stitches, yarn over (yo), k2tog, (knitting two stitches together at the same time) and slip 1 stitch, knit 1 stitch, pass the slipped stitch over (skpo). It is designed for new knitters wanting to grow their confidence and can be layered for an all seasons look.

Made in our gorgeous 100%, worsted spun, alpaca yarn and available in five sizes.
