Description

Jenny fell in love with this boxy top as soon as she laid eyes on it and immediately cast on after purchasing Quince & Co.'s Kestrel yarn in the color Ash. A quick knit on size US 10.5 needles, Jenny flew through this project while enjoying its simple construction mixed with shale lace and dropped stitches. To keep the top from looking too cropped on her long torso, Jenny added one extra repeat, but kept the rest of the pattern as is. Once completed, she softened up the fabric by washing it a couple times in her washing machine (drying flat both times) until she felt it had just the right amount of drape for wearing.

Jenny is 5'9" and wearing size 54 1/4" with an extra lace repeat added on.

We unfortunately don't carry the Kestrel yarn from Quince & Co, but we think Berroco Captiva or Remix would make a great substitute!
