Top of the Morning ~ single printed pattern** 

The  perfectly  basic  crewneck  top  for  chilly  mornings  and  beyond.  Developed  especially  for  Apple  Oak  Fibre  Works LinCot,  this  pattern  is  ideal  for  showcasing  unevenly  spun  yarns, yarns  with  textural  interest,  and  yarns  with  dramatic  colour  variegation.  Got  a  sweater’s  quantity  of your  first  handspun?    Rainbow  yarn  acquired  on  a  whim?  Or  perhaps  some  cotton  bouclé?  This  is  the  pattern. 

Top  of  the  Morning  is  worked  seamlessly  from  the  top  down  with  raglan  sleeve  construction  and  classic  ‘sweatshirt’  proportions.  Subtle  details  include  twisted  rib  edgings  and  short  row  shaping  for  extra  lower  back  coverage.  Suitable  for  advanced  beginners.
