An angular top designed by Galina Carroll takes direction from a range of stripes in the earth tones of Silk Garden Sock Solo colorways #5 and #40. The front and back are each composed of two pieces, with horizontal and vertical stripes, shaped at the side edges, forming the outer pieces. Solid-color pieces are knit separately and sewn to the top pieces in finishing, with reverse stockinette borders at the lower edges, armholes and neck. Precise increases and decreases on the striped pieces are essential for a neat, professional look.
