The top consists of 2 rectangles, which are connected in the last row of the finishing band. It is a very easy and fast pattern, with minimum shaping. The top has an oversized fit. The bottom of the top can be decorated with a fringe. Also you can thread a long chain into the shells at the waist for a different look. The number and the width of the color swathes can be changed, allowing for many variations.
