Pattern Notes

This top is worked flat top down. Front and back are first worked separately, starting from the folded neckline edge where the I-cord string is applied at the end.

The two pieces are then joined in one and the body is worked flat. Centered increase line (back and front) and side decreases shape the body.

Vertical side seam closes the body at the end.

Fringes are applied at the end to embellish the bottom edge.
