Summer Silk - ITO Kinu Giveaway!

There's nothing like stripes to herald the arrival of summer! Combine stripes with silk, and you've got the perfect pairing. ITO Yarn's FUJI Top is the essence of summer.

Knit in ITO Kinu, FUJI is a classic striped tee with a modern silhouette. The back is longer than the front and finished with a scooped hem. It has a relaxed fit and the 100% silk yarn make it the perfect garment for hot summer days.

FUJI is knit flat and seamed which brings structure to the finished piece. Short rows are used to achieve the interesting scooped back. Once seamed the piece is finished off by picking up stitches for the armholes and neckband.
