Simple and slinky, toss this top over a tank or swimsuit top to cover up, yet still look fabulous. While the pattern as written has a boxy look, the drapeyness of the large gauge stitch and the bamboo ribbon yarn will make it form to your form! Pair it with anything from jeans to a skirt to capris for a simple yet stunning look.
The triangle trim on the bottom hem is echoed in the openwork detail at the top of the front. This top works up very quickly so you can start it today and still add it your wardrobe before summer is over!

Finished size: S/XS (M/L, XL/2X), finished bust 36”( 44”, 52”). Remember that bamboo garments grow a bit with wear and cleaning and choose your size accordingly.
