The summer top Fiks has a wide ballet neckline and slim shoulder lines. The simplicity of the design
requires a perfect fit at the yoke so it is meant to be worn without a positive ease at the yoke. It is pretty and feminine to wear and easy to knit!
This top is worked from the top down as follows: The shoulders are cast on in rows and joined after shaping the neckline with firm increases that hold the fabric into shape. Front and Back of the yoke are worked separately. After armholes are shaped Front and Back are joined to work the body in the round. Small edges at body, neck and armholes are worked in either a 1×1 rib or a slim purl edge.
The top has a negative ease of approx. 0-5 cm/0-2” at circumference of bust. Be aware of the armhole depth, so the top won’t be too tight under arm! The finished measurement around bust is XS: 76cm/30” (S: 84cm/33”, M1: 92.5cm/36.5”, M2: 96cm/ 38”) (L: 100cm/39.5”, XL: 109cm/43”, 2XL: 120cm/47.25”)
