Skipper

$9.00

This design is part of the Pacifico Knits One Ocean collection. Learn more about the collection here.

I love to knit in warm weather; it’s an excuse to tuck away gorgeous, wooly yarns and spend a little time with my other favorite fiber: linen. Designed for knitting (and wearing) in the sunshine, Skipper is that summer top you can pull over a swimsuit, wear with a summer dress, or throw on with a pair of capris. Easy breezy – that’s the name of the game.

A light and easy summer tee with a few hidden “gems” to keep it cool and breezy, Skipper is a quick knit for casual wear with extra room for a super comfy fit in the body and a closer fit in the arms for a flattering look. The body is knit with two strands of yarn (held double). The neckline and lower edges of the sleeves are knit with just a single strand of the linen, which creates little windows of lighter weight fabric.
