This top demonstrates ways to adjust stitch counts between patterns that have different gauges and two ways to achieve waist shaping. Beginning directly above the ribbing, the lower border is a combination of drops and twist patterns that maintain a constant width. Decreases worked along the sides shape the section between the waist and bust. The twisted rib pattern contours female curves artfully and adds a slimming element.
