Steph Top

7.00

The Steph top is flowy, breezy, and lightweight - ideal for warm summer days, outdoor concerts, thrown on over a swimsuit, & more. The sample is knit up in Wool and the Gang's recycled denim Billie Jean yarn, but this top would have excellent drape in linen as well. It is meant to fit with 0-1" negative ease and is available in sizes 30"-46" with 2" increments in sizing.

This pattern is also available via Ravelry and Etsy // Handknit tops (& more!) can also be purchased on Etsy // Custom order a top at megan@freesiafibers.com
