Breakfast in the Garden Top is designed for v-neck lovers. It is worked seamlessly from the top down, with the neckline being an integral part of the design and is worked at the same time as the garment. As a top down design, you can easily change the length. It uses very little yarn and the stitch pattern makes the colors of speckled yarns really pop.

This design is graded with inclusive sizing in mind, designed to fit actual bust sizes from 76 cm / 30 inches to 168 cm / 66 inches. Measurements are given in both cm and inches. This pattern comes with video tutorials.
