The Boardwalk Top is made for the shore. Knit in a lightweight yarn, the openwork lattice stitch is airy enough to wear all summer over a tank top or as a beach coverup. The stitch motif is inspired by the way the slats of the boardwalk create a geometric pattern of unexpected beauty.

Knit in a simple rectangle, after blocking and seaming, the lightweight fabric will curve to fit the shape of your body when worn.

A shawl in the same stitch pattern can be found here.
