The MARTA Summer Shirt is a short mohair blouse with a boat neckline. It is worked from the top, in one piece, and can be knitted sleeveless, or with short or ¾ sleeves. All hems are finished with an i-cord.
You will work increases at the shoulder yokes for the front and back pieces, and short rows to shape the front and back necklines. After the shoulder yoke, you’ll separate the work into front and back pieces, which you will work separately with decreases. You will join back and front again under the armholes to work the body in the round.
You will pick up stitches around the armhole to work a short or ¾ sleeve, in the round, or to cast off immediately with the i-cord if you are working a sleeveless version.
These detailed pattern instructions contain technical sketches describing the position the turning stitches for the short rows at front and back, a detailed sketch of the model with all measures and dimensions, as well as a blank sketch for your notes and conversions.
