The Nordic summer top is a simple and basic top, which is perfect both for every day as well as for festive occasions. It is worked bottom up with double thread on thick needles. Despite the thick yarn, the top feels light against the skin and has a lovely drape. The Nordic summertop has a rather short and wide fit. Front and back are alike.
Due to the slim and light straps, no larger sizes have been designed for this top.
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.
