Pattern Notes

knit top

This breezy summer knit top is worked in two identical flat panels using only combinations of the knit and purl stitch. Use the measurements to block each panel before seaming them together for the best results.

Red Heart recommends this yarn be washed with cold water on the gentle cycle and lay flat to dry.
