This a fingering, sleeveless, and drapey fit for warmer weather and for layering in transitional seasons as requested by knitters of Cascade Locks. Layer it with a jean jacket for Fall (or Spring) weather! The sample shown was made with optional waist shaping and is a small size top worn by a medium size model.

This simple and elegant top is worked top down seamlessly, allowing you to make adjustments for fit and length as you go. The stitch pattern is easy to memorize and makes for a great take-along knitting project.

This versatile and flattering top is easy to dress up or down.

The slight A-line body style includes plenty of rich texture with mock cables running horizontally through the yoke as well as along the sides. A longer back hemline is shaped with short rows for a fun and flattering fit suitable for many body types. The scoop neck and angled hemline are given a smooth finish with I-Cord.

This top is named for the town of Pacific City on the central Oregon coast. With scenic beaches and views of Haystack Rock, Pacific City has a little bit of something for everyone.
