TWIST AND SHOUT TOP ENGLISH
This pattern is in English
Twist and Shout Top is a summer top with a tight and cropped fit. The top has a deep V-neck and buttons all the way down the front. The pattern is created by right- and left slanting cables divided by purl stitches which adds a rib effect to the pattern. The top is worked top down, starting with the two triangles of the chest which are joined by cast on stitches creating the back piece. As a finish the plackets and straps are worked in twisted rib.
