Notes: Ogee is a sleeveless top knitted from the bottom up in one piece. The body is worked in the round to the armholes, and the upper body is then worked flat. The top has an allover pattern with traveling twisted stitches and simple scallop lace. The shoulder straps are worked in i-cord then joined using Kitchener stitch. Ogee is reversible and can be worn with the lower neckline at the front (as pictured) or the back; however, for the purposes of the pattern, “Back” refers to the side with the lower neckline.
