The Ocean Wave Top is inspired by lazy afternoon days by the sea-side, a favorite way for both my and my husband’s families to spend vacation days. This top features a boat neck with lace details in the front and back, and ¾- length sleeves. A lacy striped pattern accents the lower half of the sleeves and body. This is a perfect top for breezy days at the seashore at the beginning or end of the summer season, or for evenings when the wind kicks in.

Sweater is worked flat, bottom-up, and seamed. Sleeves are set-in.

Both written and charted instructions are provided for the stitch pattern.
