The delicate lace pattern and scalloped hem are embellishing this feminine A-shaped top.

  • This top is worked in the round from the bottom up to underarms. The upper body is worked back and forth; shoulders are seamed using the 3-needle BO technique.
  • German short-rows are used for shoulder shaping. Knitters also could use any other short-row method of their choice.
  • Alternate skeins of yarn every two rows to blend the hand-dyed yarn.
