Aviva Wrap Top Pattern

    This top is worked from the top down. You will start at the back and will work flat to the underarm point, where you will then place stitches on hold. You will then work both front panels flat to the underarm point by picking up stitches at each shoulder, before joining the three panels together to continue working the rest of the body flat. The two front panels are then joined together using a three needle join, which will allow you to work the decreases and ribbing waistband in the round. The sleeves are then worked in the round by picking up stitches around the armholes. You will then work the i-cord edging around the inside of the body.

    This pattern contains instructions for sizes XS (S, M, L, XL) (XXL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL). See listing image 3 for measurements info.
