A beautifully straightforward ribby, stretch-to-fit, retro style top in a gorgeous multi-tonal DK yarn, with borders and collar worked in a plain, toning DK. The back and front have a central reverse stocking stitch panel and there is an easy 3 button back neck opening. Gentle shaping on the back and front, with no actual decreasing of stitches, but instead using needle changes only to achieve the look. The vintage feel of the design is completed with a little collar in garter stitch which is a continuation of the narrow neck edge, so no sewing on! Worked bottom up and with full written instructions.
