This top is worked in 2 panels that get seamed together at the shoulders and partially up the sides to create a split-hem. It is worked from the bottom-up, starting with the post stitches to create a ribbed texture at the bottom of this piece. The remainder of the top is worked using single crochets and chains, with a few rows of basic shaping to create the scoop-neck. Instructions are included on how to elongate this top, shorten the total length of this top, as well as elongate or shorten the straps for a deeper, or more shallow neckline.
