This top is knit in brioche stitch on large needles, it is a quick knit in spite of the fingering weight yarn. There is very little seaming, just the sleeve seam. The front and back has an easy three needle bind off. Contrasting I-cord is used to hold the sides together and is also used as a fun accent on the front.

Size: S (M, L, XL), 34 (38, 43, 48)” bust measurement. This is a loose fitting garment meant to be worn with a bit of positive ease.

Note: It is important to make a gauge swatch and wet block it. Brioche Stitch will change significantly once washed and blocked! This will also help you know how loose you need to cast on and bind off.
