White Nights Summer Top ENGLISH


This pattern is in English.

White Nights Summer Top is a nice and summery top with a lace pattern on the lower part of the body and a simple yoke with a feminine and close fit.

The top is knitted bottom up, first with a lace pattern and then in stockinette stitch on the yoke. The back is then fastened off and a top piece for each breast is knit back and forth, then finished with a lace strap. The strap is made to go all the way to the back, where it is first knitted together with the back piece and then sewn on for better strength and look.

It is advisable to try on the top as you go, to get the right length on both the body and yoke.
