Notes: Fenix is constructed in two separate identical side panels that are then joined together at the centre back and centre front. Each panel starts with the first triangular section, then the body of the panel is worked in vertical rows while incorporating the first section into the body. Afterwards, decreases are worked at the bottom of the body where the second triangle section will finally be worked. An edging is added to the centre front and centre back edges of each panel. Finally, the panels and straps are sewn together and a single crochet edging is worked around the neckline and armholes.
