Crossroads II by Yumiko Alexander is knitted with a combination of lace, stockinette and reverse stockinette stitches.

The lace on one side of the body falls lower than the stockinette on the other side, giving this top a cute asymmetrical shape that forms naturally.
It is worked in the round to the underarm, and then the Front and Back are separated and worked back and forth along with the stitches that are cast on for the sleeves.
