Notes

Inspired by a Repetto t-shirt, I designed the major parts of this pullover myself. Front and back are identical and sewn together at the sides. I suppose I could have declared it a strapless top and be finished, but it didn’t stay up! And after the long sleeves were sewn in, the neck was still way too wide. So, instead of adding a separate lace collar as planned, I knitted the collar straight on. Now it works.

All the main parts are knitted on 2.00 mm needles, for the collar I started with 4.00 mm, and reduced the needle size gradually.
