Last spring I took an amazing trip to Ixtapa, Mexico, and from that trip emerged a design perfect the laid back beach culture. I named the design Ixtapa in honor of the destination that inspired it, and after submitting the sample to Louet, I quickly knit another version in Charcoal.
The yarn is Louet Euroflax Sportweight Linen, in Champagne. Worked on size 4 needles, the top is lightweight, and the lace panels accentuate the summertime feel of the top.
Some interesting features:
Side lace panels & lace hem in garter stitch lace pattern
Swing shape for body
V-neck finished with lace eyelets
Hopefully you’ll enjoy this as much as I did!
