 Floatside is a unique fingering weight top which features a clever side-to-side construction for a practically seamless garment with effortless ease and drape for days, this lovely Spring top is the perfect opportunity to flash your floats and bust some stash!  

 

Floatside's hem and collar are finished with a knit-on icord, which results in clean lines and beautiful drape and also has the added benefit of being worked directly over the colorwork ends, meaning there are no ends to weave in. The colorwork is very straightforward, worked flat (no purling) with no float catches and requiring only a few grams of each contrast color.
