Maraska top is worked seamlessly from the top down. It starts with a lace yoke worked in the round which ends with an eye-catching textured divider. The yoke continues with raglan increases placed between the sleeves, back, and front. After completing the yoke, extra rows are added across the back section to finish the yoke shaping and create a higher back neck.

After the body is joined in the round and extra stitches are added to each underarm, it is then worked evenly in rounds to the bottom. The sleeves are then worked top down to the cuffs in a simple and smooth linen stitch pattern. The length of both the sleeves and body are easily adjustable.

The hem and cuffs are embellished with similar textured stitch patterns, worked with the help of modified front post stitches made over the linen stitch pattern.
