This simple yoke top is shaped by changing your gauge as you knit. Only one or two increase rounds (depending on your size) are knit just after the cast on - from then on, all shaping is created by changing your needles and adding in a second yarn.


Worked in two lovely luxurious yarns from Quebec hand-dyer Bleu Poussiere, the loose gauge creates a sheer, floating fabric, ideal for layering over tanks and tees on cool summer evenings.



Sizing

 10 Sizes: (1, 2, 3, 4) (5, 6, 7) (8, 9, 10) | (36.5, 39.75, 43, 46.25) (49.5, 53, 56.25) (59.5, 63, 66)” finished bust

Choosing a Size: 
The sample shown is size 2 modeled with 4.5” of positive ease. For a similar fit, choose a size about 4” larger than your actual bust. Note the armscye is quite deep, which adds ease around the bust as well, so if you prefer a slimmer fit, 2” of ease will also work well.

This pattern has lots of opportunity for modifications in the sleeves, body length and edgings.
