The Purl Bee shows how sophisticated a simple boxy top can be. In fact, they show it three ways, using color blocking, arm length, and waist ties to create variations on the look. Made from a woven cotton, it’s lightweight and totally breathable for summer months. Most of the pieces are cut from rectangles of fabric. The neckline is the one exception to that, and they include a free pattern. They give cutting dimensions and pattern for sizes adult XS – XL. Go to The Purl Bee for the pattern and tutorial.
