This is a stretchy and comfy summer top in the Old Shale pattern, knitted in three shades of cotton. The bottom garter stitch edge is naturally shaped by the pattern, and the edges of the top hug the edges of the shoulders (depending on how wide your shoulders are!).

The front and back necklines are naturally shaped into curves by the pattern, but do be aware that the arrangement of the curves varies from size to size due to the arrangement of the stitches. The one shown in the photo is the 40 inch size.

Due to the 18 stitch repeat in the pattern, only three sizes are given; 34, 40 and 46 inches measured on the unstretched fabric. The elasticity of the fabric and the shape of the garment means it accommodates curves well and for those more “well-endowed” this is a comfy cotton top, it will stretch beyond the sizes given and yet still shape nicely at the waist.
