Saison Top is a three-season tank with modest lace at the hem. The silk noil yarn has a lovely hand while knitting and is a wonderful weight for a light layer.

Length: 13(13.5, 14, 14, 14.5, 15) inches from cast on to underarm

Stitch markers
Waste yarn or stitch holders
Yarn needle to weave ends
Gauge: 20 stitches/28 rows per 4” in stockinette stitch.

Note: This top is worked in the round from the hem to the underarms. Front and back are then worked separately to the shoulders. Shoulder stitches are joined using Kitchener stitch or three needle bind-off. You may wish to bind off neck and armhole finishing stitches with a needle two sizes larger, as silk does not give like wool does.
