This breezy top is worked in our Batiste Yarn in color Pewter.
This top is worked in 2 pieces flat in a fun and easy open stitch. If you can YO and center decrease you can do this stitch.
I designed this top to be to be worked in two pieces to add a little structure and weight to the sides seam. Both pieces have no shaping except for the simple short rows on the shoulder and slight shaping for the neck edge.
When deciding what size to make in this top keep in mind there is suppose to be 2-3" of positive ease.
