A casual, stretchy long sleeveless top in an open lace ridge pattern, with a boat neck and a high twisted rib over the hips. The top is easy to knit in the round. It is worked in a divine mercerized cotton from Hifa, called Perle/Pearl which is held double to emphasize the structure of the lace pattern. The cable cowl accentuates the design and gives the top a more dressy look.

Notes:
The body is knitted in the round up to the armholes and then flat to shoulders holding yarn doubled. The Lace Ridge Pattern creates a ladder at the join. There is no neckband nor armholebands. The cowl has a temporary cast on so that the ends can be easily be grafted together. The cable on the cowl is very wide so working it without a cable needle is not recommended.
