This top is simple to knit, easy care and perfect for dressing up or throwing on with jeans. Use a single strand of sport-weight linen or create your own color combination by holding 2 strands of lace-weight linen together.
The simple design flows easily with only two simple seams at the side worked as a 3-needle bind-off. Other than weaving in your ends, no finishing is required. Worked side to side, the Garter stitch fabric flows beautifully and the linen yarn makes is easy care. With three garment length and sleeves knit from shoulder to wrist, it is an easy design to customize to your wardrobe needs. A quick, easy knit you will find yourself wearing all the time.
21 sts and 28 rows = 10cm (4") in Garter stitch after machine washing and drying, measured with some stretching lengthwise.
