Whether you wear it as a cover-up after a swim or paired with a flowing skirt and sandals, Wily Wahine is a versatile crocheted piece that will take you from a day at the beach to a late night bonfire. We wanted to evoke the popular peasant-style tops of the 70s with an open, airy feel. The flattering neckline takes a graceful dip and brightly colored detailing adds just the right amount of island splash. Slits at the sides and roomy sleeves add to the easy fit and naturally we wanted to use a yarn that would convey a summertime feeling. And what’s more summery than corn? Yarn made of corn is certainly unusual, but the bright colors and smooth texture make this the perfect thing for the next clam bake. Just go easy with the butter.
