Here’s another version of the easy, sleeveless summer top even beginner knitters can tackle. It’s all garter stitch, and no shaping. This one is made NY Yarns Tropical Silk (60% cotton, 30% viscose, 5% silk, 5% acrylic). It took 4 50g balls which are $7.49/ball. The pattern is available for purchase too.
And here is Lynda’s lovingly prepared display of NY Yarns, Tropical Silk (on the left) and Caprice (on the right). Do not come and mess this up!
