Are you ready for summer?
“Season” is designed for fun & quick knit!

Knitting in the round (almost all K sts :), bottom up, eyelet details, all in one piece / no seaming (only attaching straps with 3-needles-BO).
You will be ready to wear it this summer!

The white sample is S size with cropped length knitted with Saredo “Re-re-ly” recycled chainette yarn.
You have a choice of either cropped or regular length. Please check the yardage carefully.

The photos shown are with M body (36” chest), so they are shown with negative ease. If you like tighter fit, this works. I would like to wear either no ease or +2~3” positive ease.

“Season” is just perfect for summer knitting. I hope you will enjoy knitting and wearing!

Any yarn works as long as you get the correct gauge.
Yardage: S (M, L, XL, XXL)
Cropped length - 500 (550, 630, 700, 780) yards.

Please take time to check the gauge.
