Top with Braid (English)

Top with braid is a light summer top with narrow straps and a braid on the front piece, which is quickly knitted on a large needle.

The top is knitted from the top down with a simple braid mid front and the rest in stockinette st. The pattern provides two different options for the edge below; a raw rolled edge and a folded edge. You start by knitting in the round until you reach the point of the top where the work is divided in a front and back piece, which are knitted back and forth separately.
