The Pressing Herbs Top is a bottom up, two-panel, Tunisian crochet garment made using the beautiful Luma yarn of The Fibre Co. Both panels are made similar, starting with a ribbed hem that transitions into a knit stitch featuring three vertical ribbed stripes. The middle ribbing, on the front panel, splits into a flattering v-neck and ribbing is used again to cap the shoulders and finish the sleeve cuff.

Model shown has 50” bust and is wearing size 6.

The pattern is worn with 4-6 inches of positive ease and is written with nine sizes:
