Pattern Notes

This top is first worked flat until the neckline increases are finished and then in the round from the top down.

The Lateral Braid is worked with smaller needles. If your yarnovers are too big, go down with the needle size.

You can adjust the circumference of the hem by blocking the lace border moderately or more vigorously.
