Monroe topp is a V-neck top with buttons on the back. It has a short fit and is a perfect companion for high cut skirts, trousers or over summer dresses. Or maybe a vest?
The top is worked bottom up back and forth and the button holes are created while knitting. No new stitches are picked up at the neck and armholes. Therefore, neatly finished edge stitches are especially important. It is recommended to iron the edges before wearing so that they do not curl upwards.
Rauma Garn X Witre:
This instruction was created for the collaboration between Witre Design and Rauma Yarn in the spring of 2020. The instruction was first published only in Norwegian in a booklet before being translated into German and English in the summer of 2021. The structure of the text is therefore slightly different from what you might be used to from Witre Design instructions.
