Salty Blue is an oversized top designed for the lovely yarn Nature’s Luxury La Parisienne.

This is my second collaboration with Nature’s Luxury. Thank you, Danica!

La Parisienne is incredibly soft and light, yet its special spinning characteristics gives the garment a beautiful stitch definition and smooth look. Perfect for a drapey summer top!

Kits for this top are available at Nature’s Luxury.
If your favorite color is out of stock, please contact Nature’s Luxury!

The top is worked in the round from the top down. Shoulder increases and short rows are shaping the yoke. After working the shoulder increases the front and back are worked in rows to the armholes. Then the back and the front are joined and knitted with decreases for the dolman shaping in the round to the hem.
