Designed by Rachel Brockman
Cay is a little bit funky and modern, and a whole lot wearable. Bands of lace form the side panels, which are knit sideways. Front and back pieces are knit from the bottom up. The side panels are joined to front and back, creating a visually interesting side split. This split allows for ease of movement, but also happens to look super cool. The knitting in Cay is relatively simple with minimal shaping, making this an excellent first garment.
In this pattern, work all slipped stitches purlwise with yarn in front unless otherwise noted.
