A highly versatile top which can be worn as a loose tunic, cropped top with sleeves, wrap, scarf, or short buttoned dress. It’s made in one piece, so little sewing required and can be worn over practically anything from a swimsuit to evening dress. Made in our gorgeous 100%, worsted spun, alpaca yarn and available in two sizes.

Knitting techniques required to make this are cabling, making stitches and a really easy lace.
