CAROL FELLER is much admired for her innovative approach to garment design. She has used a fascinating construction method for this modern top, starting with the striped triangle wedge at the bottom, then using short-row sections to shape the top before completing the body in the round. It’s knitted in Carol’s own yarn brand, the gorgeously soft, glowing Nua

Pattern notes
This top begins with the striped triangle. Once this is complete, short rows are worked back on forth on the other side of the garment with decreases to ‘fill in’ the other side of the top. The remainder of the body is then worked in the round to the armholes. The front and back are divided and worked flat until the shoulder, where they are joined together using a three-needle cast-off.
