With my experience working in a yarn store, I have found that most people give up knitting once the warm weather arrives. Here is a reason to rethink that common practice, at least for a little while.
Made with your choice of hemp or linen, this feminine, sleeveless top is perfect for wearing during the hot summer months. Although, it could be worn year-round by layering it with a sweater or blazer.
The yoke features a lace stitch that is reminiscent of macramé, and almost looks like it has been crocheted. However, it actually is knit, and it isn't a complex stitch pattern.
The yoke is worked chunky, using 3 strands of yarn. A more delicate, single strand repeat of this stitch pattern borders the bottom edge, with side slits.
The lace work requires some concentration, but once the yoke is finished, the rest knits up quickly. Working Stocking stitch in the round, the main body has gradual side increases to create an A-line silhouette.
