This is a beautiful yet easy top to knit. The bottom, armhole and neck edges are decorated with beads knitted into them. The body pattern is a very simple lacy pattern that is easily memorized. The top is open in the back and pearl buttons are used for closure. After finishing the top a wonderful piece of bead knitted ruffle adds to the beauty of the design and makes it perfect for the bride to be.
