Did some alterations:

  • In stead of binding off just after the lace yoke, I keept on knitting short sleeves in raglan. Knitted a 10 round 2x2 rib on 3mm needles, then bound off with Jeny´s surpricingly strechy bind off - but only used the tecnuiqe on the purl sts for a not too stretchy bind off.

  • For adding more room in the bust area, I made a -k1, kfb- on the fronts 1 round after the lace yoke, in stead of short-rows, since I at the time did not know how to make short-rows neatly in st st. I am very happy with the resut - not too much fabric, just a little extra room.

  • I made 2x2 ribbing on the edge too.

  • Other CO - I guess I used what is called a norwegian CO. I knitted the yoke with 4mm needles, as I would like a more wide neck than some of the others I saw here on Rav.

  • After wash n´ dry, I must admit the top is a bit big, but still absolutely usable. The stitchdefinition is beautiful and I rather like that it grew a bit, so it got more sexier…

  • 10 leaves in yoke: 3 on both front and back, and 2 on each sleeve.
