Notes

My tutorials. See my tutorial how to block dresses: https://www.heavenlyclassyknits.com/tutorials

Note on the yarn. The yarn is very soft. Because of dramatic change in thread thickness, knitted fabric looks very textured without complicated lace pattern. Highly recommend for people who look for sophisticated easy and fast project. It took me only 1 day to complete this top.

Modifications. I made the neckline higher and added ruffles on US 11 with “Be sweet” extra fine mohair. Also added short sleeves. I did not use smaller needles for armhole part and continued with US 15.
