Charlotte is a casual easy wearing top. Knit in a drapey cotton it feels luxurious and cool on your skin, skimming over your curves for a shapely, relaxed fit.

The bottom is neatly hemmed and the sleeves and neckline are finished with a built in garter edge. The garter stitch stripes create an interesting texture as well as the opportunity to experiment with the latest colours.

The body is knit in the round from the bottom up while the chest and sleeves are knit flat. The shoulders are joined using a three-needle bind off. Minimal seaming is required on the underside of the sleeves.

There is a 5-8cm positive ease built into the top. Choose your size on your actual bust, or use finished garment measurements.
