This sport weight crochet top has delicate details that make it ultra feminine yet easy to wear. Side slits, graduated lacework, and gently tapered armholes make for a very flattering fit on most body types. Simply slide over your favorite camisole or slip dress and throw on a big floppy hat for the perfect look to a garden party. Worked from the bottom up and seamed.
Fairmount Fibers, the distributor for Manos del Uruguay, has the following tips for an easy project.
"Armholes are shaped by skipping stitches at the end of rows. The “steps” created by this method of shaping are filled in with hdc-dec stitches during finishing. Because RS and WS look very similar, it may be useful to place a removable marker into the fabric on the RS to easily identify the RS from the WS."
