Barbroe Top is an elegant top featuring an allover eyelet patterning. It is worked from the bottom up in the round with 1 strand of either Merino or Pure Silk. The top is divided into front and back at the underarms and each piece is then shaped and finished separately while working back and forth. The Barbroe stitch pattern is charted only and easy to follow. I-cord edges finish the front and back neckline. Barbroe Top is intended to be fitted and is therefore designed with negative ease. To choose the correct size, look at the ‘to fit chest circumference’ measurements on the previous page. If your actual chest circumference is, say, 98 cm [38½”], you should choose to knit a size M in order to achieve the intended fit
