We knit the front surface of a strip: 4 rows of beige thread, 2 rows of silver, again 4 rows of beige and 2 black.
We knit a border and a flower according to the pattern.
Striped knit density: 29 stitches and 36 rows.
Knitting the back of the top
On knitting needles No. 3 we collect 116 loops and knit 4 rows with a black thread with a garter stitch. We continue to knit the front surface with stripes (as indicated above), and we begin to decrease at a distance of 1 loop from the edge, 7×1 loops in each 4th row and 2×1 loops in every 2nd row. As a result, 98 loops will remain. Starting from a height of 12 cm we add 9×1 p, we get 116 loops. We form armholes for the sleeves from a height of 29 cm. By reducing 1 x 2 p., 2 x 1 p. In each 2nd row, a total of 108 loops will remain. For the cut, it is necessary to close the central 2 loops at a height of 39 cm and in the 2nd row the inner loops are 1x1p. To form a neckline, close 31 loops on each side of the section. The bevels of the shoulder are formed if you close in each 2nd row 1 x 11 p.
Knitting the front of the top
We knit in the same way as the back. But to form a neckline at a height of 40 cm, close the central 20 loops, then from the inside in each 2nd row 2 x 4 p., 2 x 3 p., 3 x 2 p., 3 x 1 p. The bevels of the shoulders are formed as follows same as for the back.
Knitting top sleeves
On knitting needles No. 3 we collect 80 loops of black thread and knit 4 rows of garter stitch. We continue to knit the strip with the front stitch, adding 9 loops in each 3rd and 9th row. Total we get 96 loops. We begin to form a sleeve ridge by decreasing in each 2nd row 2 x 2 p., 26 x 1 p., 1 x 2 p. As a result, there will be 34 loops that we close.
To get the final result, you need to sew all the details of the top. To knit the neck, dial 130 loops and tie 4 rows of garter stitch with black thread. On the 5th row close. Crochet a section in the back area, make a buttonhole and sew a button. From a silver thread, crochet flowers according to the pattern and sew to the top.
