The Alight Top was inspired by my young daughter’s love of birds and bright colors. Simple cables, reminiscent of birds in flight, are sprinkled across the garment to create a lovely, textured fabric. These cables pair beautifully with even the most variegated or speckled yarns! The body is knit in the round from the hem upwards. The front and back are divided and worked flat with extra stitches for grown-on sleeves. A classic wide boatneck makes this top easy to slip over a child’s head, but please swatch (and block!) the Texture pattern to ensure the neckline has the correct finished width.
