This asymmetrical top is shaped with slipped stitches. Slipped stitches worked only on one side of the top pull the knitted fabric up on that side. The shorter right side and longer left side create visual interest. The eyelet stitch pattern in the windows created by the slipped stitches are an attractive focal point.
