Fresco Top is a short summer top with a slim cut and only one strap. The top is worked bottom up in rounds, before it is divided into front and back piece as the armhole openings; both pieces are finished separately. The top has a „raw“ edge at the sides with decreases that add a nice detail to the otherwise simple design. Fresco Top is identical on front and back piece and is worked in one piece. In the instruction, the strap is described on the left front, i.e. when the top is worn.
A summer top with straps will always seam looser and wider as the given measurements. Choose a size that is 5-10 cm slimmer (negative ease) than your bust measurement. The stated measurement on the front page is for the finished garment.
Circular needle 4 mm (60 or 100 cm) for body, front and back piece, as well as the strap.
Circular needle 3 mm (60 or 100 cm) for ribbing.
The pictured model is worked in Rauma Petunia in colour 271.
