Beautiful fields of cinna grass colored golden by the sun during long summer days were the inspiration for this design.
Playful vertical stripes, boat neck, simple straight silhouette make Cinna top a nice addition to any summer wardrobe.

The top is knit sideways. Ribbing at the hem and along the neckline prevents stockinette from rolling. Symmetrical increases shape the shoulder and add visual interest to the pattern. Adjustable length and an optional tie at the bottom help to finetune the fit of the top to perfectly match your needs.

This pattern can be knit in any number of colors and is perfect for using up leftover yarn or mini skeins.
