  1. This shell is intended to be worn with positive ease around the bust and waist, it is knitted bottom up in the round to the armscye then separated to front and back, with the sleeve and collar trim picked up and worked in the round.
  2. The eyelet detail is worked in a way that will make it wrap around to the backside of the shell. You will find that once the yarn over is worked to the beginning round stitch marker, you will be working the detail as if the beginning of the round is moved with the eyelet.
