French Marigold Top

BY MONA ZILLAH

Accentuate your curves with this  flattering and feminine top, a versatile piece you’ll reach for again and again. Worked from the top down in the round, the pattern includes both charts and written instructions for the neckline and bottom lace sections with an option for waist shaping as well.  Available in eight sizes, the French Marigold top is meant to be worn with up to two inches of negative ease for a figure-hugging fit.

The designer’s sample was knit in a merino/cashmere/silk blend, and we think it would also be a wonderfully dressy, year-round top knit in our lustrous elann Luna and we’ve illustrated it in several of Luna’s rich shades.
