10504 Sleeveless Top
SUMMARY: This pattern is a woman’s mid hip-length, sleeveless tank top with a scoop neck and moderately deep armholes. There are 2 versions shown, each with broadly spaced rows of eyelet pattern running vertically up the design, separated by stockinette sections. They differ in the pattern at the bottom edge and the armhole and neckline finishing. Version A has a 6-row, half-snowdrop eyelet pattern on the bottom edge. The armhole and neckline are finished with a K1, P1 ribbing picked-up from the body pieces. Version B uses the same 6-row eyelet pattern but continues for an additional 60 rows, forming several completed snowdrops, then a diamond leaf pattern and finally topped with round flower heads. The armhole and neckline are worked in stockinette stitch, also picked-up from the body pieces and self-faced with a picot stitch turning edge.
