Summery colors, slipped stitches, stripes, and twists come together in this top inspired by marine fields of seagrass. The beautiful stitch patterns remind us of the movement of these plants through the current.

PATTERN NOTES
This top is knit flat in pieces and seamed. Stitches for the neckband are picked up during finishing and knit in the round. Stitches for the armholes are picked up and worked flat and are shaped using short rows. When shaping the neck and shoulders, we recommend using the sloped bind-off method.
