Casey Drop-Stitch Top Pattern

Casey Drop-Stitch Top Pattern

Regular price $ 15.00

This lightweight top or beach coverup is worked in two pieces, front and back. 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.

Casey is also available in a kit.

      Sophisticated, elegant, stylish, chic. After seeing James’ collection, I may give up needlepoint.

      These designs take men's sweaters to a whole new level of luxury and deliciousness. Might have to get a new man once my divorce goes through, just so I can knit him a James Cox Knits sweater.
