Black Night Top ENGLISH


This pattern is in English.

Black Night Top is knit top-down. First, the front is knitted back and forth with a straight neckline and armhole increases. Then, stitches are picked up from the top of the front piece for the back, which is knitted in the same way and joined with the front at the armholes.

The top is then knitted in the round straight down and finished with an icord edge. Finally, stitches are picked up at the armholes and neckline, and an icord edge is also knitted there. The Black Night Top requires no seaming.
