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. Bust darts are provided to add fabric and good fit. Increases will create ease and a high-low hem will end the body. Small edges at body, neck and armholes are worked in either a 1×1 rib or a slim curled edge.
