This top is knit top down, starting with the collar, working into short rows at the back neck, and then finally separating for sleeves before moving into the body. Sleeves are a raglan style to offer mobility and comfort while the back of the body is given more short rows to offer a slight high-low hem. The bottom of the bodice is knit in a simple lace pattern that displays a fun scalloped edge, bound off with an icord for a clean edge.
