Classic ballet-neck top with an openwork yoke and short sleeves. This sample was knitted using a luxurious cashmere yarn, and has Swarovski beads added at the yoke.

The garment is knitted flat with side seams, but could be made in one piece using a circular needle. The beads are added during knitting using a small crochet hook.


The top is knitted using Cashmered 3ply/light fingering cashmere yarn. (The original yarn has been discontinued, but this yarn is a similar weight)
