DROP_LOOP_TOP is worked from the bottom up in one piece. The body is worked in the round in stockinette stitch, then the work is divided into the front and back sections, which are worked flat one at a time. Decreases are worked to form the armholes, the neckline and the back of the neck. Drop stitches start by the armholes and are dropped from there and from the upper part of the top. The dropped stitches run elegantly down the front and back sections with neat panels of stockinette stitches on either side of the body.

The top has a positive ease of about 0 cm.

You should make a size where the circumference is about the same as your own chest circumference, depending on how fitted you want your top to be.
