  • This top is worked in four separate rectangular panels. Each panel is worked from side to side. The back pieces are grafted together in the center using Kitchener stitch. Stitches for the lower ribbing are picked up along the lower edge of the lace panels, and the ribbing is worked in the round.

  • The garter-stitch edge of each panel is the shoulder edge. The reverse-stockinette-stitch edge is the lower edge.
