Nokia top is an early 00’s inspired corset-type cropped tube top, knitted in stretchy garter stitch with an i-cord detail framing the upper edge.

The top is worked flat in separate panels that are assembled while knitting with crochet seams. This versatile piece can be worn on its own as well as layered over other shirts.

The Nokia top is a quick and fun knit, suitable for all levels of knitters.
