Capri striped linen top pattern
Created by: Erika Knight
Broad, beachy stripes! Perfect for Summer.
Erika Knight designed this slip-over top in broad, beachy stripes using her Studio Linen yarn. 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 drape. Choose closer tonal stripes, or go for a bigger contrast with nautical navy and white!
