Say hello to summer and knitting with cooler fibers, meet "Only Happy in the Sun!"
The inspiration: I had a lot of linen yarn in my stash and wanted a nice, fresh, summer top for the warmer months. I wanted to create something breezy, lacy, and of course with a bohemian feeling! This top is a fun and quick summer knit and is great for layering over tanks, dresses, or even a bathing suit!
The Design: Only happy in the sun is a linen, dolman shaped top with a wide boat neck. It is fitted in the waist with ribbing and very loose in the bust with an easy allover lace pattern. The top is knit flat in two pieces and the shoulders and ribbing sides are seamed leaving the sides wide open! It is a unique, fun design, perfect for beach and vacation knitting!
The Yarn: Knit up in Quince and Co. Kestrel yarn, a chainette, linen, worsted weight yarn this top is super quick to knit! The crisp yarn is refreshing to knit with in the hot months and it softens beautifully as you wash and wear it!
