Light and lacy, this oversized top with cropped sleeves and hem is perfect to toss on over a swimsuit or tank top at the beach, or to wear out to a summer time dinner, Despite the two-toned fabric, you need only stitch with one color of thread at a time so don’t be afraid to dive in. And don’t let the word “thread” scare you either - the size 3 thread used here is no lighter than your average sock yarn! This variation on a traditional butterfly stitch makes a fabric that is completely reversible.
