Notes

  • This top is worked back and forth from the bottom up in separate pieces and seamed.

  • The stitch counts assume that the Lace chart has 6 stitches in each repeat.

  • During shaping, if there are not enough stitches in the lace pattern to work a double decrease, then work a single decrease and omit its companion yarnover. If there are not enough stitches to work a single decrease with its companion yarnover, work the remaining stitch in stockinette stitch instead.
