A light and airy short sleeved top which knits up quickly.

It uses a much larger needle than standard, which means that it uses a lot less yarn than usual.

The feckles add a gentle splash of color.

The pictured garment has zippers at the sides. These are optional and definitely not recommended for a beginner!

Any Fingering (4ply) yarn can be used. As the yardage may differ from the pictured garment, the estimated yardage is listed in the pattern. Once you knit the Back, you can accurately estimate the remaining amount of yarn needed as this piece uses two fifths of the overall yardage.

DO NOT PRINT THE FULL INSTRUCTIONS - JUST PRINT THE PAGES FOR YOUR SIZE.

  • the first page has pictures
  • second page has measurements, gauge, notes, etc.
  • after that there are separate instructions for each size, listed one size at a time. With 9 different sizes, just print the 2 or 3 pages for your own size.
