I want to propose you to knit in the round, using circular needles. This top has short puffed raglan sleeves and it was made by knitting with two strands of Katia Panama.

Work in the round with the technique Top Down (from top to bottom), except for the sleeves which are worked in rows going back and forth. The increases worked in the sleeves create the lantern shape effect.

The cotton yarn used is a natural fibre and will tend to stretch therefore the final garment will be a little smaller for size when finished.

Clarification: work the rib bands with the size 6 (4 mm) needles and the body with the size 8 (5 mm) needles.
