Chest circumference 

71 (74) 80 (87) 93 (99) cm.  

The measurements above are of the finished top. It should have an approximately 10-15 centimeter negative ease, meaning it is smaller than your bust circumference (or widest place on your upper body). Measure yourself and find your size. The sizes correspond to the chest circumferences of 80-85 (85-89) 90-95 (96-102) 103-108 (109-114) cm. 

Recommended yarn 
The model on the pictures is worked in 100% Mulberry Silk by A Knitters World, which has a yardage of 400 m / 100 g. The color is “Cherry Blossom”. 

Gauge (after wash) 
Width: 28 stitches on 10 cm 
Height: 38 rows on 10 cm 

Yarn quantity (approx.) 
200 (200) 200 (200) 200 (300) gram 

Suggested needles 
Circular needles 3 mm or the needle that gives you the correct gauge.  

Circular needles 2.5mm for the rib.  

The top is worked top down. First, the upper front pieces are worked back and forth followed by working the upper back pieces similarly. They are then joined on the same circular needle and the body is worked in rounds.  

Since all bodies are unique, you can easily adjust the length of the body by shortening or lengthening it by a few cm. Remember, it might require a bit more yarn to knit the top longer in some of the sizes.
