Melissa Wehrle knits laceweight on big needles to create a slinky, silky, transparent fabric punctuated by simple zigzagging eyelets. The deep cowl and ribbed edges of the Zick Zack Tunic are knit with two ends of yarn rather than one for a contrasting, slightly more structured fabric with the same fluid drape.
