This top-down short-sleeve top displays a radiating twisted rib neckband that transitions elegantly into an eye-catching pattern with gradually growing lace and twisted stitch motifs. Worked seamlessly in the round, the stockinette fabric underlines the intricate stitchwork of the yoke and makes this piece a breeze to knit. Carefully placed short rows ensure a comfortable fit.

The impressive selection of colors for Miss Babs Yummy 3-ply base allows you to find pretty much any color needed in your wardrobe.
