ClaraTop is knitted from top to bottom in one piece. The top becomes wider by increasements (M1R/L) on which the back piece is knitted. Finally, add a string of any kind, either a thick string or the strings can be knitted in the same type of yarn as the body of the top. The ClaraTop is a fresh and light summer top.

The measurements must be taken on your own body, after which you can select the right size. Note, that the top has a negative movement space of about 5-10 cm so if you stand between two sizes – pick the smallest one. So, the garment measures about 5-10 cm smaller than when you wear it.
My ClaraTop in the picture above is knitted in a size small and my measurements are 90 cm over the chest and 76 cm around the waist.
The yarn spending is approx. 110 (120) 150 (160) g of cotton yarn (Infinity Hearts Rose 8/4 (50 g = 176 m)) from Rito.dk, ie. around 4 balls of yarn (since it is knitted in double thread), but you can make do with 3 balls of yarn with specific sizes.
My ClaraTop is knitted in the color 81 – light blue
