The Cumulus Top is worked from the top down in stockinette stitch. First, four triangles are worked to shape front and back with a V-neck, which are then joined on the circular needle to form the body. The body is worked straight in the round in stockinette stitch and finished with a folded hem. At the end, i-cord edges are worked along the top edges. These i-cord edges are continued into the straps, which are sewn together with Kitchener stitch at the shoulders.
This kit includes:
2 (3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 5) balls of Tynn Line from Sandnes Garn
A small tapestry needle

The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 cm. This means that the Cumulus Top is designed to have approx. 6 cm of negative ease (meaning the top should be 6 cm [2¼ inches] smaller than your bust circumference). Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 89 cm around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S top has a bust circumference of 84 cm which in the given example would give you 5 cm of negative ease.
The model in the photos is wearing a size XS and has a bust circumference of 82 cm and is 164 cm tall. The top in the photo has 2 cm of negative ease.
