This elegant top is knitted in two pieces with integral sleeves; the front and back are joined at the shoulder seams. It uses a lace stitch called the Scroll Pattern, an 18-row pattern which produces a textured appearance. Combined with the bands of colour, this gives the stripes a waved effect.
The top was knitted using Blacker Yarns Samite silk blend which has now sadly been dicontinued. Go to Yarn Sub to find a replacement.
