This top accompanies the Swarm of Wasps Skirt . The Wasp Wing Lace is at the bottom edge and if you compare it to the skirt, you will notice that the “wasps” are climbing up the top. The lace pattern is worked top down on the skirt and bottom up on the top. The charts for the lace pattern are not interchangeable since the pattern is different when worked in the round. A double decrease is used at the top of the wasp. When worked flat, it is on a WS row, so a purl version of the decrease must be used. The top is worked in one piece to the armholes when it is divided for the backs and front.
