Alice Top - Knitting Pattern

Designed by PetiteKnit

This pattern is a printed pattern in English.

The Alice Top is worked from the bottom up. The body is worked in the round in stockinette stitch to the armholes, the work is then divided for front and back and each section is finished separately, each worked back and forth in stockinette stitch. The back is worked in one piece, while the front is divided for a V-neckline. The pattern also contains instructions for working the top from the middle using a provisional cast on, so the final length of the top can be adjusted at the end by working the body top-down. 

Start by knitting a swatch to determine which size needle gives you the correct gauge. Wash the swatch as the recommended yarns will grow with washing and wear.
