"Peasant" Linen Top

It took me about three weeks to finish. I used a combination of knitting and crochet, as well as Fair Isle. The yarn - Louet Linen in Natural and Terracota was a pleasure to work with. I like it so much that I might make something from linen again, even though I have many more projects to take care of.

The Fair Isle band pattern is a Ukrainian folk design from this site

thus the name "Peasant".
