Cloud Top - Knitting Pattern

Designed by PetiteKnit

This pattern is a printed pattern in English.

The Cloud Top is worked from the top down. First the back yoke is worked flat back and forth while short rows hare worked to shape the shoulders. Then, each shoulder is worked separately, back and forth and with short rows. The shoulders are then joined to form the front yoke. The front and back yoke are joined at the underarms to form the body, which is worked in the round on a circular needle. Along the neck and armhole stitches are picked up and knitted and a stockinette stitch edge is worked.

Knit a swatch before beginning the project to check if the recommended needle size gives you the correct gauge.
