Cumulus Top is knitted from top to bottom in stocking stitch. First, four triangles are knitted, which are then joined together on a circular needle to form the body. The body is knitted straight down in stockinette stitch and finished with a double folded hem. Finally, i-cord edges are knitted along the edges at the top of the top. These continue into the shoulder straps, which are sewn together with mesh stitches.
The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL correspond to a bust measurement of approximately 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 cm. The Cumulus Top is thus worn with a range of motion of approximately -6 cm. Measure yourself before you start knitting, to determine which size will fit you best. If you e.g. measures 89 cm around the bust (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 mentioned example will give a range of movement (negative ease) of -5 cm. If you are between two sizes, choose the smallest size.
The model in the picture wears a size XS, has a bust measurement of 82 cm and is 164 cm tall. The top is thus worn with a range of movement of -2 cm.
