A fun top to play with shaping!
The stockinette keeps this top simple enough, but with shaping construction that makes it fun and interesting! You will master increasing, decreasing and picking up stitches.

The bamboo is super comfortable and perfect for spring and summer weather! But a cotton, linen or hemp would work beautifully too!

This pattern is knit with approximately 1” negative ease. Bamboo is a very stretchy fiber. After your piece is knit, be sure to block to your measurements. If you choose a different fiber yarn, I highly recommend testing a swatch to find out the amount of ease you will have. If there is no ease, it’s recommended to follow the next size up.

Designer Notes
This pattern begins at the hips with a provisional cast on, and is worked down to the point. The provisional cast on is then picked up and the piece is worked up, finishing at the shoulders.
