Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting flat

Pattern Description:

Enjoy the delicate beauty of a botanical top that flatters without revealing anything. The secret is the welted leaf pattern. Textured leaves run horizontally along the hem and vertically in a front panel that draws the eye upward, while waist shaping creates a silhouette that skims without clinging. Charming cap sleeves and the addition of lingerie straps at the shoulders create no-fuss femininity. After working flat in two pieces, you'll finish with a 3-needle shoulder bind off, seam the sides of a polished top that's simple to knit and to wear.
