This summery hip-length top was inspired by glamorous images of the Italian Riviera from 1950s.

The wide V-neck front and back, and short sleeves are perfect for showing off a golden tan, and the loose fit means it’s a comfortable cover-up for cooler evenings. It would look great worn over loose palazzo pants or a long skirt.

…and just to set the scene – Ravello in Italy

The pattern is available in Issue 125 of The Knitter magazine.
