This halter is the perfect summer top. The cotton blend keeps you cool, while the halter shape shows off tanned shoulders. The candlelight lace panel on the front is adapted from the candlelight #2 pattern in Barbara Walker’s 2nd Treasury of Knitting Patterns. It makes a perfect introduction to lace knitting and chart reading, and the detail gives the halter that little bit of extra interest. It’s light and airy for day, but the slight shine from the silk content in the yarn makes it appropriate for evening as well. The straps can be threaded through eyelets on the back border, sewn onto the back, or fastened with some pretty clips, which would make it adjustable as well.
