Description
This soft, fluffy tank made with three different yarns-alpaca for the lacy lower section, an angora-wool blend for the yoke, and mohair for the edging and tie-is worked in the round to the armholes, at which point the back and front are separated and worked back and forth to the shoulders. The nontraditional contrasts-the cold-weather yarns and warm-weather tank style; the blood-red stockinette-stitch bodice and white lace body-combine in a crazy-romantic way that seems just right for a New Year's or Valentine's celebration.
