The Girona top is inspired by the city in Catalunya (Spain) that my husband and I visit every year when we go to see his family. It’s a gorgeous, under-rated city with a historic old town, a lot of bridges, beautiful buildings lining the waterfront, and it’s probably best known for its gothic cathedral (as seen in Game of Thrones!). This lightweight top is perfect for those hot summer days - best enjoyed with a café amb gel (Catalan for iced coffee)!

This color-blocked summer top is knit bottom-up in two pieces, then seamed together at the sides. The shoulders are connected by a 3-needle bind off, and it contains a lace edging on either the back or front (depending on how it’s worn!). Did I mention it’s reversible?!
