Pattern Notes
This dainty top is knitted in the round commencing at the bottom edge until the armhole divide, at this point the front and back are knitted separately with additional stitches cast on to form the sleeves. There is a back opening at centre back incorporated into the lace pattern and the shoulders are joined by either grafting in pattern or using a three needle bind off. A picot edging is added to the neckline and sleeve edges to finish. The pattern includes charts of the lace pattern in combination with written instructions.

The size shown in the photographs is the first size worn with 4cm (1.5in) of positive ease. It is suggested that you choose a size with approximately 9-18cm (3.5-7in) of positive ease at the chest.
