A beautiful summer design knitted in thin wool with stunning hand-dyed colors. Because we love summer and the gorgeous hand-dyed yarns from Hedgehog Fibers and Madeline Tosh, we have combined the two into a stunning fusion of colors and naughty design. Small stars can be knitted at the increases, giving a pretty and graphic expression. Or if you prefer a pure and simple look, these can be omitted. The top is slightly oversize at the chest, and has a light A shape.

Directions: The top is worked in the round, from the top down. Cast on stitches using a temporary crochet cast on, so the size of the neckline can be adjusted subsequently.
