Tide Pool Kit
Important: Choose shade first (with size set at smallest size) then choose size.
A picot-edge hem, adjustable halter top, and stockinette A-line body comprise this cute Tide Pool Top. The Fibre Company's Luma yarn is a blend of wool, cotton, linen, and silk, making it super smooth and cool for summertime. Cathryn loved making and loves wearing this top! She knit a size 40.75" (medium) with 6 skeins, and had enough yarn lengthen the top for her long frame.
Our kits include the pattern and Luma. We include the number of skeins called for in the pattern for each size.
