After long and dreary winter months, the bright, warm summer is oh so welcome. Plants flourish, flowers poke their little heads out of the damp ground, and the garden comes alive. Insects, birds, and animals are busy busy, and so are we! There is nothing more delightful than summer exploration in backyards, gardens, and parks, where everything is fresh and enchanting. There are always new things to find, exciting activity to watch, and intriguing pathways to follow.

Summer Pathways is knit sideways and seamed along the sides and shoulders. As such, it is cast-on based on desired LENGTH and can be knit to fit any sized bust. Small cap-sleeves are knit afterwards and sewn on. This top is constructed in a way that makes piecing fast and easy, with a lovely polished finish. The loose-fitting body and boat neck are flattering and make it an easy top to throw on over the head. The shaping of the neck and sleeves give a classic fit, and also protect the delicate skin on shoulders and chest from the hot summer sun. Knit up in Worsted / DK weight yarn with lace detail, this summer top is sure to fly off your needles in a hurry.

Summer Pathways Top is also available in baby-child sizes. Who doesn’t love matching outfits?
