Approaching the Armhole

I haven’t had much time to spend on the ShiBui Linen top, but I did get to the part where I wanted to add “gathers” under the bust. They don’t show up much here, but I used k2tog to decrease about 20 stitches, concentrated in the center half of the piece, just below the purl ridge. The width is about 3″ narrower above the purl ridge. If things go as expected, this will give a bit of airy swing to the lower body.
