Repeat pattern for back

SEWING

Lay both pieces with one on top of the other. TIP: I made sure there was one long end on each corner.

Sew the shoulders closed with a whip stitch using the long end, leaving a 9.5” (10”) [10.5”) {11”} opening in the middle for the neck.

Sew the sides closed with a whip stitch using the long ends. Leave a 6” (6.5”) [7”] {7.5”} opening at the top for arm holes.

Fasten off. Weave in the ends. Turn right side out.

SLEEVES

Join yarn to the bottom of an arm hole.

Round 1: ch 1, sc evenly around (work approximately 2 sc in the side of each dc – this needs to be a multiple of 3), join to first sc with sl st

(approximately 48 (54) [60] {66} stitches – if this is not exact that’s ok, as long as it’s a mult of 3)

Round 2: ch 4, turn, dc in same stitch as the join, skip 2 stitches, *V stitch in next dc, skip 2 stitches* repeat from * to * around, join to first ch 3 with sl st

Round 3: ch 4, turn, dc in same stitch as the join, skip next dc and ch, *V stitch in next dc, skip next dc and ch* repeat from * to * around, join to first ch 3 with sl st

Repeat round 3 to Round 14 (16) [18] {20}

NOTE: The bell sleeves are created in the next round. The repeat does not have to work out perfectly, as long as there is an increase it will work

Round 14: ch 4, turn, dc in same stitch as the join, *skip next dc and ch, V stitch in next dc, V stitch in next ch 1 space, V stitch in next dc* repeat from * to * around, join to first ch 3 with sl st

Repeat round 3 to Round 22 (26) [30] {34}

Fasten off, weave in the ends

Repeat other sleeve.

And you’re done! I hope you love this cute top!

  1. WOW,
    Simple instructions, easy to follow pattern, and finished top in brilliant color is really a great Wear.
    The increase bit would be clearer if a video was posted just for those few stitches; or a stitch diagram would be helpful.
