Pattern Description:

This simple, yet elegant, top is worked flat in one piece in a nearly seamless manner. What a fun way to construct a sweater or top!

The stitch pattern is easy to memorize and makes that perfect takealong summer knitting project.
With loose cap sleeves, boat neck, and hip skimming length, this is a flattering summer top for any figure type.

Neskowin is a completely reversible shell that can be dressed up or down, layered with colored camisoles, and is as perfect under a jacket for a business meeting as it is on the beach with a pair of shorts.

Neskowin is a quaint little community on the northern Oregon Coast. A simply beautiful place.
