This delightfully lacy baby top is knit from the top down with an increasing rib worked back and forth for the yoke. The lacy body is knit in the round. It can be worn with the buttons in the front or the back. Knit it a little longer for a dress or knit the legwarmers and headband to go with it. It can also be knit in two colors. Knit with larger needles to get a larger size top.
