The Hourglass Crochet Top is an elegant, intricate looking yet deceptively simple design. The slow nature of working with fingering weight yarn is significantly offset by the tall stitches which work up quicker than you’d expect. The 4x4 cabled stitch looked like an hourglass to me, hence the name of the design.
The top is worked seamlessly from the top down and features a modified drop shoulder construction, with shaping at the underarm and the sleeves to minimize the bulkiness of the traditional drop shoulder sweater and provide a more flattering fit.
The pattern is written for 18 sizes, with finished busts ranging from 28" to 70". This makes sure that everyone can wear the top with the recommended 0-2" of positive ease. The top can be worn as a blouse with sleeves, or as a sleeveless vest/tee.
