A New Knit: Caribbean Wrap Top

Why “Caribbean”? Because of the beautiful bright blue color that reminds me of the stunning waters surrounding many of the Caribbean islands. I feel the need for a warm, beachy vacation!

Here’s my latest knit — a simple wrap top with sweet short/cap sleeves and a ruched neckline.

 

Caribbean Wrap Top Front

 

I used Classic Elite’s Provence yarn, which is one of my fave cottons. The stitch pattern is an interesting yet easy one — alternating sections of openwork and a simple cable stitch. The ruched neckline is worked in stockinette and the closure is a simple button/loop.

Here’s a close-up of the sleeve and stitch pattern. It’s lightweight and perfect for a warm weather vacation. Looking forward to the Summer!
