The Harbor Top with its loose fit, cotton yarn, and sleeve-less design make it a perfect summer top that can be worn over a bikini or your favorite shorts while taking a stroll around your local marina or port.

It is worked from the top down and features a simple construction that is beginner-friendly. It is worked flat to form the chest section and then worked in the round for the rest. Afterward, you seam a few stitches at the shoulders to finish it up.
