Hello, there knitters! Firstly, thank you so much for choosing to knit up the Xtina Crop! This design is very near and dear to my heart and is my first colorwork yoke pattern! You will find two color charts to choose from, Chart A is the original pattern as seen in the sample knit and Chart B has some extra colorwork with no increases for you to do if you would like to lengthen the yoke. This top is designed to have a cropped, flowy fit! There is a lot of positive ease in this design, so please keep that in mind when picking your size out! One last thing before you get started…the colorwork on this pattern is not for the faint of heart! There are 60-70 rows of tri-color stranded knitting! Your knitting may be tight after you finish the yoke. My suggestion for the best fit is to place all of the yoke stitches on waste yarn and block out your knitting before continuing on to the body.
