• For the body (= from underarm to bottom), make 2 strips A (= A1, A2) of 252 loops on each side with a centre sc. Join the end and the beginning of strips A with both ends of yarn to form a round (= star on the diagram). For the upper back and front (= chest), make 4 strips B (= B1 to B4) of 129 loops on each side with a centre sc. Strips A will form the bottom of the top and strips B the chest area with sleeve openings (= armholes).
Working in the round, edge both sides of strips A gathering loops with 5 ch and 1 sc as shown on page 2 starting with 1 ch and 1 sc and ending with a sl st in this 1st sc. Edge strips B on the same way but working from one end to the other of each strip and on each side, joining a new yarn each time.
Working in the round, join strip A1 and A2 with 1 sc and 3 ch as shown on page 2, beginning with a ch and 1 sc and ending with a sl st. Join strips B on the same way but working in rows, starting with strip B3 and B4 and ending with B1 and B2. Join 1st half (on the right) of A2 with B3 and 2nd half (on the left) of A2 with B1 on the same way.
