We love how versatile this summer top is--generous dimensions allow it to fit almost all sizes, and the amazing drape gives such a flattering fit. Cool and breezy, quick and easy to knit. Beth chose our Loops Luxe Plant-Based Princess in the "Daylily" colorway, and Shelley used a hand-dyed Euroflax linen in a discontinued colorway, but eco-stitch created a similar colorway on their flaxi linen base for us.   

This one-size-fits-most pattern by Shelley Brander has a finished circumference of 70 inches (178cm). You will need 3 skeins of Plant-Based Princess or 3 skeins of Euroflax Linen or 6 skeins of eco-stitch flaxi and size #7 (4.5mm) 32-40" circular needles or size needed to obtain gauge of 4 sts x 6 rows to 1 inch in stockinette and a crochet hook size F for a single crochet edge around the neckline. 

You can purchase the pattern here. This pattern is free with purchase of at least 3 skeins of Plant-Based Princess, Euroflax Linen or eco-stitch flaxi. Just add both the pattern and yarn to your cart, and a discount code will automatically be applied to make the pattern free.
