Published in Interweave Knits Summer 2020, the Terrestrial Top has wide lace panels on the upper bodice and a saucy box pleat worked over a narrow lace panel on the back.   Enjoy the coolness of cotton this summer in this perfect cotton shell.  The top is worked from the bottom up, back & forth in pieces before seaming.  A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches.  When working the neck shaping, if there are not enough stitches for half of a lace repeat, work those stitches in stockinette instead.
