The sunhat was just so gorgeous, it was crying out for a matching top. This is Katja from Knitty
I really like learning more knitting techniques and this one called for a provisional or crochet cast on. Again ...really must learn how to crochet. You can see in the pic you end up with live stitches that mean you can rejoin your work without seaming. Luckily I found instructions for a noncrochet provisional cast on at knitty.
