I only had one metre of this distressed print cotton jersey and I wanted to make a quick knit top before I went on holiday, so I paired it up with the short sleeved version of the merino wool sweater I made last winter (and wear all the time!). The neon trim was just a happy accident – I’d originally planned a basic neckband of self fabric but I mismeasured the neckline (I forgot to add in the top of the raglan sleeves!) so I started to think outside the box and I remembered I had some of this stretch fluroescent orange binding (also from Minerva!) in my stash from earlier in the year. Now I can’t imagine this top without it!
