Knitting kit for June top by PetiteKnit in Önling No 12
June top is a sweet and simple summer tank top, designed by PetiteKnit. The June Top is worked from the bottom up, and it has a deep neckline on the back and small i-cord edges. Here we knit it in 2 strands of Önling No 12 held together, which gives you the possibility of playing with colors to obtain a mottled effect. If you would like a mottled effect, choose 2 different colors and work them together.
This yarn kit contains: Önling No 12 yarn for the selected size and a printed pattern, which you'll receive physically with your yarn. The pattern is NOT digital.

The top is designed to have approx. 5 cm [2 inches] of negative ease. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 89 cm [35 inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S top has a bust circumference of 84 cm [33 inches] which in the given example would give you 5 cm [2 inches] of negative ease.

Procedure: June Top is worked from the bottom up. The body is worked in the round in stockinette stitch, then the work is divided into front and back, and each section is finished separately by working back and forth in stockinette stitch. The pattern also contains instructions for working the top from the middle by using a provisional cast on, so the length of the top can be adjusted at the end. The June Top is designed to have a deeper neckline on the back – but only so deep that it still covers the bra. A small i-cord edge is worked along all edges.
