Every summer wardrobe needs easy, breezy, sleeveless tops. They’ll take you from a morning beach stroll to an afternoon shopping on the boardwalk. Catamaran is a perfect top for wearing alone or layering with a button-up shirt for chilly days. Cotton Supreme Sapling is soft and comfortable, with a gentle texture that reminds us of ripples on the surface of the ocean. Catamaran is a relaxing knit, but the broken stockinette stitch patterns will keep you interested as you work.
