Alive like hands in lovers’ tipsy stroll / This swirling top mocks doubters of art’s worth / As mischief plays throughout her waves of lace / And moonbeams dance across her rippled face

The puckish Goodfellow Top is worked in several different directions from beginning to end. The border lace is worked flat and joined; the body, which features lace and slip stitches, is picked up and knit; and the lace bands on the sleeves are attached perpendicularly and grafted. Layer this top with a floral shirt or a simple silk camisole for a breezy summer look.
