Simplicity and elegance are key in this understated top. Drama is created using an open draped neckline and ruched hemlines.

This top is knit as a lightweight material from fingering weight yarn that has been knit with a loose gauge. This creates a flattering and stretchy material. Knit in the round from the bottom up, the ruches and hem are created as you knit. When the body is finished sleeves are picked up and knit down from the armhole (using short rows) leaving you with minimal finishing when the knitting is done.
