This is the pattern only, not the finished garment.

A reversible top that can be worn with the lace in front or in the back. Make it a tee or a sweater. Make it as long or as short as you want. Wear it as a top or layer it over a shirt. There is no right or wrong way to make and wear Rasamala!
With top-down raglan construction, you’ll have ease of mind of increasing at the same spot throughout the project. This pattern is designed to maximize your yarn so that you’ll have very little left over. The sample was made on size 36″ and it only used 2 skeins of Papiput Velvet yarns with 4 grams left!

There is around 1.5 – 4” / 3.75 – 10 cm of positive ease after blocking.
