Fearne is a simple yet versatile lightweight top featuring a cropped length, designed to pair perfectly with high-waisted jeans and skirts. Starting with a delicate scallop trim, Fearne is worked in the round from the bottom up to the armholes with subtle A-line shaping. At the armholes, work is divided for front and back, then worked flat to the shoulders. Garter stitch trims are used on the neck and armholes for a clean and modern finish. A key layering piece for a minimalist wardrobe, Fearne can carry you through all the seasons.
