COOL AND comfortable, this tunic top has a stripe pattern in summery colours. It’s complemented by two-colour diamond motifs around the deep lower hem, which are worked using the Intarsia technique. The round neckline is decorated with small wooden beads. The top was knitted in Rowan’s Panama linen-cotton blend, but this yarn has since been discontinued; although many shops will still have stocks of Panama, we have suggested an alternative from Patons.
