This swingy, slightly cropped spring top skims the body with A-line shaping. Knit from the top down with yoke and then raglan increases and trimmed with deep lace and texture borders, it’s easy knitting with a bit of concentration required at the end.
Our model is wearing a size M that was made slightly longer by adding 2 extra rounds between increases. Our sample knitter used 1,000 yards as a result.
