knitscene Summer 2018: Tide Pool Top
The Tide Pool Top is the perfect cover for when you’re out of the water and under the sun but still want to feel the summer heat on your shoulders. The halter-top and relaxed fit make it a stylish, comfortable garment for any outdoor warm-weather activity. Throw it over a swimsuit or pair it with shorts and sandals for all of your care-free, sun-kissed summer adventures.
A picot-edge hem, adjustable halter-top, and stockinette A-line body compose the Tide Pool Top. The yarn, Fibre Co. Luma, distributed by Kelbourne Woolens, is a blend of wool, cotton, linen, and silk, making it super smooth and cool for summertime.
Among the many sun-kissed projects in knitscene Summer 2018, this project will have you craving poolside days. Knit up those summer plans now.
