The Summer vibe top is a basic top with a very simple garter pattern worked flat. Besides garter stitch the pattern is made by knitting 3 stitches together and yarn overs.
The pattern looks complicated but is actually quite easy to knit. The construction is also very simple and consists of two pieces that are sewn together.
The pattern includes both a chart and row-by-row instructions for the chart. The top can either be worked in 8 colors plus a contrast color or in one color plus a contrast color. The Summer vibe top is knit top down and can therefore be lengthened or shortened as desired. However, the yarn requirement is for the pictured top and the specified measurements.
