This quick-and-easy spring top is worked from the bottom up and is almost entirely seamless. It’s perfect for the warming days before summer is in full swing or early fall when it’s not quite cool enough for a sweater. An analogous color pattern that transitions from a brilliant blue to a vibrant yellow elevates the simple design into a striking work of art.
