A top for summer days worked at a loose gauge, it's airy in the sunshine, yet warming as soon as it gets chilly.
The front and back panels are worked first, then stitches are picked up along the sides of the panel to work the sides and sleeves. The front and back are then joined using a three needle bind off, which creates a subtle side seam. Alternatively, you can graft the sides together using kitchener stitch in order to create a seamless garment.
This garment is intended to be worn with at least 10-15 cm / 4-6 inches of positive ease.
