It’s a top-down top knitted with circular needles. It is a simple pattern, where the design is obtained by working a different size ribbings. For the measurements of the finished garment, the ones in the graph are taken on the finished top only partially stretched (because of the ribbing part). When you wear it, the top will stretch and take your body forms.
I always suggest to try on the work in progress, to check size, ease, and wearability. By doing this, you can knit the perfect fit for your body shapes. In fact, everybody is different and sometimes only some small changes can make the difference, as making the top longer or wider. Don’t be afraid to customize your Patrizia to adapt it for a perfect fit.
