Easy to dress up or down, this feminine summer top flatters all figures. The lace border with half-twisted ribbing and eyelet details adds this special something to a very relaxing knit with lots of stockinette stitch. Paired with a linen yarn for a summer-y version or with a linen or wool blend for breezier days, this design invites you to get creative. We highly recommend Wollen Berlin‘s Lino Muka that comes in just about every colour of the rainboy - simply pick your favourite and treat yourself to a new everyday favourite!

The Peony Top is knit in pieces from the bottom up. Side and shoulder seams are closed before the neckline and armhole finishing are worked.

This pattern has been test knit and professionally tech edited.
