You will love this top for its quick-change capabilities – there are so many different ways to wear it.
First: is a classic fitted top with a V neck.
Second: you can add the lacy insert which buttons or snaps in, and it is perfect to wear under a blazer.
Third: a striped insert creates a sporty nautical look, and you can wear the top for a casual outing.
One more: Layer it over a crisp white shirt as a V-neck sweater - that’s version number 4!
This is a convertible sweater that really works. Great for travel: one sweater – 4 looks!

The design is done in stockinette stitch with some purl accents for texture. It is knitted in the round with raglan sleeves and with no sewing required. An attached I-cord is used for the edging along the neck. The buttonholes (where the insert buttons go) are disguised by the I-cord.
The hem and sleeves are finished with a tiny ruffle. One of the 2 inserts has lace with a pretty zigzag edge. It will attach to the sweater with small snap fasteners. The second insert is striped, with a tiny ruffled edge, and it attaches to the sweater with silver buttons.
