This simply elegant top is worked flat in one piece in a nearly seamless manner. Simply fold it over when done and stitch up the side seams. What a fun way to construct a sweater or top! The stitch pattern is easy to memorize and makes a great takealong knitting project.

Seaside Shell is versatile enough to be worn as a casual summer top or as a dressy layer under a jacket or sweater. It’s perfect for a business meeting or for a stroll along the beach.

Style points include lots of texture, a notched hemline, loose cap sleeves, boat neck, and a hip skimming length that flatters just about any figure type.

Seaside Shell is named after a quaint little community on the northern Oregon Coast, a simply beautiful place to visit or to stay for a long, long time.
