Knitting on the diagonal is easier than it might seem. As a result of lateral additions and decreases, a rectangle is formed. The longer the rows become, the narrower the stripes. Thanks to this technique, the top beautifully fits the figure and seems almost fitted.

When there are 7 stitches left on the knitting needle, knit the middle 3 stitches in each front row together with the purl stitch, at the end also the last 3 stitches and pull the end of the thread through the last loop.
