Urban Gipsy is a seamless, cropped boat neck top mostly worked in the round, from the top down. The pattern starts by working the shoulders to the underarms, then the front and back are joined together and the body is worked in one piece.
The garment is intended to be worn with positive ease at the chest for a comfy fit.
Silky Merino is a single ply, DK weight yarn that allows you to knit an extremely smooth and shiny fabric. One of the characteristics of pure wool single ply yarns is that they felt slightly during knitting. Don’t be afraid: the felting process help to protect your garment against pilling!
