PIXHAM is a relaxed-fitting top featuring braided stitches that run across the upper body. It is knitted sideways, flat and in pieces, while the trims are worked in the round. The braiding feature is worked using a crochet hook. It is designed to fit loosely and have an open fabric.

This project will suit a variety of yarn types or weights.

Using Fingering Weight Yarns: This top can also be worked using Fingering weight yarns held double. To achieve this, simply double the yarn amounts given in the Yarn Quantity below. Be mindful of your row gauge, as this may have an effect on the width measurement of the garment.
