This beautiful summer top features a wonderful textured tulip motif (“Tulpe” means tulip in German) combined with ribbing and stockinette stitch to create a modern and feminine item for everyday wear.

“Tulpe Top” is a straight, oversized tee with a loose-fitting swingy body, boat neck, split-hem and drop shoulders. The construction is worked top-down, seamlessly in one piece. The upper front/back pieces and the split-hem are worked flat, the stockinette body is worked in the round.

This pattern creates a wonderful lightweight item with a textured stitch pattern that’s easy but engaging and that you’ll love to knit and wear.

The tulip pattern is provided in both charted and written instructions.

I hope you enjoy making and wearing your new summer top!
