This sweet, pretty boat neck features both a textured stitch pattern and color blocking to update the classic tunic. The shown colors and yarn give a decidedly feminine edge to a style more often played as sporty. It is constructed in pieces from the bottom up, with gentle waist shaping and set-in sleeves. The color blocks get an additional twist (literally) from a textured stitch pattern.

Topside’s strong lines and clean elements balance one another and make a flattering sweater for many body types. The sleeves and sweater body could be easily lengthened or shortened to suit your mood, and the color palette could be brought into a less contrasting grouping to even out the visual emphasis if desired. Vertical waist shaping darts can be easily modified for your individual needs.

Topside is available for purchase through Twist Collective.
