From the pattern description on Knitty.com:

“Knit in one piece, this flirty shell requires almost no finishing. Just join the shoulders, work in yarn ends, and you’re done!

I suggest adding some embellishment around the neckline--if you’re going to wear a deep V neckline, you may as well go for it and draw a bit more attention to yourself.

I have made this shell twice. The first time I embellished with teardrop shaped beads from a bead store; the second time a glass pendant from a necklace with a broken chain.

The shell should be fitted. Knit it to your bust size or slightly smaller.”
