La Festa Del Raccolto (Harvest Feast) takes its name from an ancient Celtic festival which celebrated the ripening of the first grain crops. It is a very simple sleeveless top worked bottom-up. It is created by alternating two very different yarns and shaped using short rows so that the back is longer than the front. It has a medium neckline and garter stitch borders.
