Fallen in love with our Skein Sisters Lacy Boxy Top? Make your own with one of our kits. Available in every colour, the kit includes 5 balls of Concept by Katia Polynesia as well as the pattern (included free).

This is an elegant and relaxed summer top, which is a whole lot of fun to knit and lovely and cool to wear. It was inspired by the look of a free pattern called the Cancun Boxy Lacy Top by Erin Kate Archer. The oversized silhouette and shaping suits everyone and is just as lovely over a dress as it is with a singlet top underneath and jeans. It is knit in pieces from the bottom up. Designed for Concept by Katia Polynesia, this linen, cotton, viscose 8ply/DK yarn has a gorgeous slubby texture and is so comfortable to wear.
