This beach cover-up is designed to take simple shapes and techniques and turn them into a drapey, versatile tunic. The easy-care linen gives a lovely bounce and flow to the knitted fabric. Don’t be intimidated by the crunchy yarn, as a quick spin in the washing machine once knit will soften it dramatically.
The cover-up itself invites improvisation. Change it up with a leather cord or a satin ribbon instead of the i-cord belt. Leave slits up the side when seaming for a flirty effect. Seam the neckline as high or as low as you want – or leave a deep V in the front and a higher V in the back… until you turn it around to show off the plunging neckline in the back! Embellish the simple fabric with beading or embroidery.
