Caroline Top

By: Alexis Di Gregorio from knotions.com
Caroline Top
Caroline Top

"The Caroline Tunic is a versatile top that easily pairs with a pencil skirt or capris. This top is an excellent project for knitters of all levels. Using a simple stitch combination, this top is a nice project for a beginner looking to try something a little more challenging. The texture pattern across the bust, along with subtle waist shaping, highlights the feminine form. Pattern Notes Bust texture length will vary for each person, due to variations in bust size versus cup sizes. Save time by measuring as you go along."
