Paired with a close-fitting undertop or all by itself, this year-round top is sure to please.
A flattering fit is obtained by the unique construction of this top: the body is knit sideways in a traditional Victorian-era lace-edging pattern and then the bodice is knit in the round, finishing off with the slight capping on the shoulder and a wide, squared-off neckline. As fun to wear as it is beautiful to look at, this design is knit with an easy care cotton-blend yarn!
[NOTE: you must be able to read charts as the lace pattern is charted in order to minimize errors ? if your lace looks like the graph, you'?re doing it right!]
