June Top is a beautiful summer top that is knitted from the bottom up. The body is knitted in the round in stockinette stitch, and the work is then divided into front piece and back, which are knitted separately, back and forth in stockinette stitch. The recipe also contains instructions for knitting the top from the middle using a temporary cast-on, so that the final length of the top can be adjusted at the very end. The June Top is designed so that the cut is deeper on the back - but only deep enough that it will still cover a bra. A narrow i-cord border is knitted along all edges.

Size guide

The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL correspond to a chest measurement of approximately 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 cm. The June Top is thus worn with a room for movement of approximately -5 cm. Measure yourself before you start knitting to determine which size will fit you best. For example, if you measure 89 cm around the chest (or the widest part of your body), you should knit a size S. A top in size S has an excess width of 84 cm and, in the example mentioned, will provide a room for movement ( negative ease ) of -5 cm.

The model in the picture wears a size XS and has a chest measurement of 83 cm and is 164 cm tall. The top is thus worn with a room for movement of -3 cm.
