About the design…
The model is worked back and forth - begin from bottom of back, work over shoulders and continue with the front piece. The back and front are finally assembled, and the bottom edge is worked in the rounds in stockinette stitch, ending with a tiny I-cord bind off.
The bust width is measured 2” (5 cm) below the sleeve, and a size of approximately 5 cm more width than your own breast measure is recommended. If you want more width in the bottom edge, it is very easy to change.
You cast on stitches on a thread, so that you have the stitches for the bottom edge. The method is called “Provisional cast on”
