The “Side aways” top is just so lovely in coordinating colors. It’s an easy fit with plenty of room, style and comfort. Slightly asymmetrical, due to the use of two needle sizes.

My 36” sample is knitted with 2 Lofty skeins by Yarnz2go, though this can also be a great using your stash projects with light weight yarns.

The fully written pattern also offers a chart for the eyelet pattern repeats, plus options are given for an adjustable neckline and how long or short your armhole seams should/could be.

For bust sizes ranging from: 34/36”, 38/40”, 42/44”, 46/48”, 50/52” in inches or 91/102/112/122/132 in cm.

Yarn
2/3/3/3/3 Skeins of Lofty, 280 yards in 7 portions of 40 yards each in varying colors, textures and yarn weights ranging from lace to light fingering and fingering.
