A modern and elegant summer top made from Pascuali's soft cashmere-cotton blend, Sole (fingering, 6-ply).
The Munja shirt, by Viktoria Maria has short Raglan cap sleeves and is worked top down in rounds. You start knitting at the neckline that is shaped with help of short rows. At the same time, you work raglan increases for body and sleeves. The back part of the body is fully worked in a lace pattern. Front and sleeves are knitted in stockinette stitch, with a detail of the lace pattern accentuating the front part.
The sizes :36 (38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52) are designed to fit a chest circumference of 33 (34.6; 36; 37.8; 39; 40.9; 43.2; 45.7; 48)"
The shirt has a relaxed fit and should be worn with a positive ease of 1.6 to 7".
Example: If your bust circumference is 34.6“ (88 cm), you knit the shirt in size 38 to get a relaxed fitting shirt with a positive ease of some 2.4" (6 cm).
