Bestway 1628: Although this is for teenage school girls I have included here as it can be knitted in 4ply or double knitting and made larger.  Ideal for the coming Tennis season. The measurements states 28" stretching to 33" bust knitted in 3ply on size 12 (imperial) so if you used 4ply and size 10 would be a couple of inches larger and again in double knitting on needles 8 (imperial) it would be bigger still. This little top is knitted on 4 needles, so you could try knitting it on a circular needle. Always add a few extra balls if making larger.
