Small, gentle waves, as you experience them on a hot summer day near the seaside. A light summer breeze, caressing your bare arms while you take a rest on the beach, your shoes next to you as you dig your toes into the warm sand.
Wavy mirrors that summer feeling. This fitted summer top is worked from the top down. First the saddle shoulders are worked individually, after which stitches are picked up along the front and the back of the saddles to work the upper front and back of the top flat. Once the desired length for the short sleeve caps is reached, work is joined in the round to work the body.
Neckline and armhole finishing are worked by picking up sts afterwards.
