Notes: Jamboree is a cropped, drop shoulder, lacy summer top, with three-quarter length sleeves. The main body is knit sideways, split for the neck and re-joined. The side seams are then sewn up and stitches picked up for the sleeves, working in the round to the cuff. The neck is picked up and worked in the round, then folded
over and sewn into place. Please note that due to a pre-publication pattern update, the sample shown in the photographs varies ever so slightly from the pattern instruction.
