This is such a beautiful top knitted mostly in Stockinette stitch with panels of pretty lace both front and back as well as around the sleeves. You look good whether you enter or leave a room.

The top has a positive ease of 2.5“ (6 cm) and the hem sits on your high hips. Knitted from the bottom up, this is a very enjoyable and surprisingly easy to handle knit.

The length of the body and sleeves are adjustable, though keep in mind that more yarn may be needed.

For bust sizes 36/38/40/42/44/46/48/50/52/54/56”.

Pattern suitable for the advanced beginner/intermediate knitter.
