Billhook is a tank top with an elegantly shaped hemline. Intended to be worn with little to no ease, it is worked in the round from the bottom up with waist shaping that is further defined by the Billhook Lace pattern that runs up the sides. The front shoulders wrap around to the back in an English tailored shoulder for a clean fit.

Body is worked in the round from the bottom up, then front and back are worked separately. Front armholes are worked to a longer depth than the Back and all shoulder shaping is worked on the Back shoulders. Shoulders are joined, then neckband and armholes are picked up.
