Neapolitan, like the ice cream, this top is delicious to make and wear. Perfect for summer, layered over bralettes or a swimsuit top. It is initially constructed in one piece from the top down using a provisional cast-on for the straps. The back is added using a cabled cast-on. The lace at the waist is knit perpendicular to the body of the top. There’s an opening left at the back of the lace for a peek-a-boo effect. You can easily adjust the length of the top to make it shorter or longer before working the lace trim portion.

"Nalu" (pronounced nah-loo), is the Hawaiian word for the ocean's waves. The Hawaiian saying, 'Nalu it', translates to 'go with the flow'. As every person who learns to swim in the ocean knows, you don’t fight the waves, you ride them.
My goal is to design knitwear patterns that go with the flow.
