 A perfect layer for hot days that roll into warm evenings, Reef is a delicious slice of summer on your needles. She looks fabulous dressed up or down, with a coolness in linen that softens with every wash. Enjoy Reef over a gorgeous skirt topped with glamorous jewellery, or toss her over jeans and sandals, for a more casual vibe. Knitted from the top-down without seams, Reef is a quick project and uses smart shaping at the neck and armholes to create smooth curves that flatter your natural shape. Simple stitches at the hem are fun to knit and give an elegant twist to her classic silhouette. Reef is an excellent pattern for a wide range of knitters, including those new to garments and charged for an adventure. Play around with yarn to create an entirely different look: think cotton for something more casual, or silk for luxury!
