Easier than it looks!

Whitecaps by Yumiko Alexander is a unique top that is quite simple to make because you only need to know three basic techniques - knit, purl, and slip.

Some sections are knit with one strand of yarn, and other sections are knit with two strands of yarn held together. This produces more textures and makes a sturdy body on a lighter see-through fabric.

The body is worked from the bottom up with no shaping. The sleeves are worked straight until just before the cuffs where decreases are worked to produce a curve at the end.
