Description
For knitters who want to try an allover lace garment, this tank is the ideal project. The body is worked in the round - no side seams to interrupt the lace - in a relatively simple pattern that repeats over nine stitches and four rows. At the underarms, the front and back are divided and worked separately, but identically, to the top of the yoke. The shoulder straps are worked as continuations of the armbands and neckband, and finished off with a delicate picot edge.
