Indulge in the decadence of knitting a beautiful and unique diamond lace pattern in luxurious fingering weight yarn with this stunningly gorgeous 2-piece set. The skirt is high waisted and fitted down to the knee for a look that is both sassy and classy. The coordinating crop top features a sexy and trendy cold shoulder detail, and criss-crossed straps at the neckline for an edgy look. A delicate picot hem finishes the sleeves and the waistband for the perfect feminine touch. Wear these pieces as one outfit or as separates, they will look equally as lovely paired with a shirt or jeans. And while the intricacy of this fine knitting pattern will be an investment well worth your time, you know what they say, better lace than never!

Both the Top and Skirt are knitted seamlessly in the round from the bottom up. The sleeves are knit in the round and then sewn to the top, and the cross-cross neckline detail is an option that is added after the Top is finished. Detailed instructions are given to customize the length of your Top and Skirt. The Skirt features a fold over waistband to encase an elastic for a perfect fit. The lace pattern is given both written and charted for your pattern reading preference.
