This is a simple top with classic lines. The ribbing of the top elongates the body. It has a v-neck with a touch of lace around the edge. The wave edging on the armhole opening gives the illusion of a sleeve.
This can be worn as a top by itself or as a vest, The body is worked in one piece and the wave edging on the armholes are attached as an I-Cord.
This pattern requires 8 skeins of 50 grams or 146 yds using size 5 needles

I have been knitting for the past 50 or so years. When I retired I started to design my own patterns. I believe that a knitted item can be modern, comfortable and stylish.
This is my goal. I'm thoroughly enjoying this time in my life. As a knitter I enjoy the comradery of the forum on Knitting Paradise.
I am a designer/teacher member of the Knitting Guild Association.
