The cable-and-lace motifs progress seamlessly from the ribbed neckband and spread out on the round yoke of this top-down seamless top, full of thoughtful details that enhance the quality of the garment. Short-row shaping lifts the back for a comfortable neckline. The sleeves and slight A-line shaped body are worked in an attractive textured pattern. Sleeves are worked from live stitches circularly to the cuff.
Choose a deep jewel tone (as I did), pastel hue, speckled or even multi-colored colorway of Miss Babs Yummy 3-ply for your project.
