This is a floating slightly A shape top made top down in one piece in the round. The neck band starts with a rip pattern. The yoke starts with the same amount of pattern repeats as we need for the main body and arms but with less stitches per repeat. The increases are worked harmoniously into the pattern repeats till we reach the necessary 18 stitches for the spiral pattern described above. The arms are short and finish with the yoke and the small edging. It is easy to make it with long arms, just go on with 20 more pattern repeats without any decreases. You can make and wear it with an ease of 5 cm up to 20 cm around your body. The larger the size the better it looks with less ease. A washed big gauge is essential for this pattern.

The Lace yarn is held double, so any other fingering yarn would do as well.
