Little Fuchsia is a very simple sleeveless top, worked in the round from top down. The construction of this garment is really very simple, making it a very fast knit.
The main attractions of the top are the very broad garter stitch stripy yoke and hem, plus the cables down the sides of the top and the little garter stitch decorative leaves on the hem.
The cable is actually very easy to work, suitable for beginner.
