What you need to know

Cool blue stripes and crisp natural fibres make Jacinta Bowie’s top perfect for spring!

The easiest way of creating vertical stripes without complicated colourwork is to work from side to side and that’s just what designer Jacinta has done here. It’s a simple shape and the stitch pattern is achieved by wrapping the yarn twice around the needle, then dropping the additional wraps on the next row to leave you with a lovely openwork effect. Layer it with a simple vest for a stylish spring look.
