Erika Knight designed this slip-over top in broad, beachy stripes using her newest fiber, Studio Linen. With a wider fit and modern boxy shape, Capri is simply designed, simply written, and simple to wear! Now let's talk fabric - next-to-the-skin softness, a smooth finish that's not sheer, and a cool heavy drape that has us all saying "Ahhhhh!". Choose closer tonal stripes, or go for a bigger contrast with nautical navy and white!
Pattern includes a schematic and is written for five sizes.

NEEDLES & NOTIONS
US 5 (3.75mm) needles or size needed to get gauge.
US 3 (3.25mm) needles or .5mm smaller than gauge needle.
Darning needle to finish.
22 sts/30 rows to 4" in stockinette stitch, after blocking.
We recommend washing and blocking your pieces before seaming; it makes putting everything together so much easier - take the time to do this! You'll also get the added benefit of a softer fabric to work with - linen gets softer with every wash.
