The little Top is knitted seamlessly from the top down and features a dramatic short sleeve with cables at the shoulder and a folded-split opening.
Discreet folds on the sides allow for a more pronounced A-line shape that continues in a slightly curved hem at front and back, while a subtle contouring of the waist still ensures a flattering shape, that allows for a comfortable fit and look.
This garment is worked with a simple crew neck, but it also has stripe placement that is reminiscent of a horizontal boatneck, to keep in balance with the wider body shape.
Edges are worked with contrasting braids and i-cord.
All techniques and methods are either explained in the pattern itself with attached photo tutorials, or links are provided that point to web-tutorials.
