Feel GOOD about yourself!
Knitting the Rupa Top will not only make you look amazing, you can feel good about helping the planet without pinching your budget.

Knit in organic cotton from the bottom up, you’ll shape the body with short-rows and darts. The body is knit in the round to the underarms where the back and front are divided and knit separately. The strap stitches are cast on and worked at the same time as the back and front with a few rounds of raglan shaping.

All the instructions are written out in detail, so you can follow along without worry and feel like you’ve accomplished this pattern with ease.
