Seaside Heights Cabled Top

When I was a child, we occasionally went to the boardwalk at Seaside Heights, New Jersey. It was a place of fun and wonders, with games, amusement park rides, and junk food of every kind. This top feels soft, easy, and summery, and reminds me of summer evening walks on the boardwalk.

Seaside Heights is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together.

The cable pattern is presented in both written and charted formats.
