StitchSaver™ Row Checker
"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped." - James

Pattern This lightweight top or beach coverup is worked in two pieces. The way the fabric drapes means you have no shaping for the neckline. The front and back are exactly alike, so it is reversible. So, that’s two tops in one. Each is worked flat from the hem to the shoulders. The sides are then sewn using the invisible garter stitch seam, and the shoulders are finished with the three-needle bind off. It couldn’t be much simpler or more comfortable.
In our efforts to find eco-friendly yarns, we were delighted to discover Reva. If you’d like to support the growing tend to recycle and reuse in the fashion industry, work with this beautiful, recycled yarn. Its subdued color palette and subtle textured finish creates a casually sophisticated look. So, its soft easy drape will feel good for more reasons than one.
This fine cotton from Egypt is divine. The feel in our hands and the resulting drape in the finished garment will delight you. The on-screen color representations for yarn may not be precise representations of actual colors due to variance in monitor calibrations.
