This summer top is created with simple stocking stitch and garter stitch, worked in two different directions. It uses a classic, sport weight, 100% linen yarn. The side body and sleeves are picked up on a circular needle and knitted out from centre body segments. The sample is knit in a slightly looser gauge to encourage extra drape in the fabric. It is shown with no ease at the bust. The hip has 28 cm (11 inches) of ease, making it flatter a variety of figure shapes. The sample is size +94 cm (37 inches) and is shown on a 94 cm (37 inch) mannequin and model. There is very little finishing required on the garment as all outside edges are worked in garter stitch and only the underarm is seamed. Sides are joined with three needle bind off.
Experience level - Intermediate.

Skills required – Long tail cast on, knit, purl, decreases, increases, short rows, three needle bind off and casting off.
