Thora’s Top is a top-down raglan vest knitted completely without purl stitches.

Actually I don’t mind purl stitches at all. I just saw it as a design challenge to make this top completely purl free. The closest you get to purl stitches is slipping a stitch purlwise.

Thora’s Top is a vest you can use outside a sweater. As your baby grows you can use it as an undershirt underneath the sweater.
