Cables and dropped stitches bring style to the summery Levantine top. Soft Seaspun yarn ensures that you'll have a feel-good finished garment that will be cool and comfortable to wear all summer long. 

Front and back center lace panels are worked separately featuring a cable pattern framed by dropped stitches. Stitches are picked up and knit along the sides of the panels and worked outward to form the sides of the body and sleeves.
