North west top is a cool top with simple details. It is worked bottom up; the front piece is worked higher and folded edges on front and back piece give the top a neat finish. The straps are worked as I-cord straps at the end, whereby the length can be easily adjusted.
Circular needle 4 mm (60 or 80 cm) for the complete top (excl. folded edges).
Circular needle 3 mm (40, 60 or 80 cm) for folded edges (worked flat).
A summer top with straps will always seam looser and wider as the given measurements. Choose a size that is 0- 5 cm slimmer (negative ease) than your bust measurement. The stated measurement on the front page is for the finished garment.
The pictured model is worked in Rauma Petunia 220.
