This top is worked from the top down with raglan shaping. A stripe pattern is worked throughout, and the bottom and sleeve hems are worked in a Yarn over Wrap Stitch pattern. A small section of wrap and turn short rows are worked at the back bottom just before the hem to help with fit. When changing yarn colours for stripe pattern, carry colour not in use loosely up in the back, or break yarn at colour changes and weave in ends as you go.
