TINAH is an easy peasy summer top in DK weight yarn, combining lace with stockinette stitch knitting. It becomes special by using a shimmering yarn with silk and linen!

The top is worked seamlessly, bottom up and in the round to armholes. Stitches are cast on for the wave-patterned yoke.
Having this wonderful silk & linen yarn in my stash, I was looking for a matching pattern with a circular yoke and a small silhouette. The top is worked up quickly and the pattern is easy to memorize.

Use neutral colors, tonal or solid and natural fibre yarns. The pattern is so addictive, I could not resist to knit two tops in one go!
