This top is worked flat in pieces and seamed. The turning chains in each row are not counted as a stitch. After assembling the body, the sleeve and hem edgings are applied by working directly into the fabric and joining in the round using the contrast color. The neck is edged with one row of single crochet in the contrast color.
