Acacia is a simple and summery little singlet knit seamless and top-down in cotton. This is a deceptively simple and quick knit that yields gorgeous results. Acacia can be knit with either a few gathers across the bodice of the singlet and finished with a ribbon; or the body fully gathered. Either is equally cute and looks great teamed with either skirts, shorts or pants.

Worked in wool, Acacia is just as versatile as a sweet little vest for the changing weather.

Construction:
This is a seamless garment constructed from the top down. The shoulder straps and bodice is worked initially before casting off the shoulder straps. From there, the front and back of the bodice are worked separately before rejoining to knit the body of the singlet.
