This light weight top a great summer knit! With the front and back worked in smooth Stockinette and peek-a-boo lace running up the side, the Elena Tank Top manages to blend sporty and frilly. The wide shoulders and tee-shirt neck line create a casual daytime feel, while the bold lacy sections along the sides add an element of danger of nightlife to the garment.

Pattern Notes
Piece is worked seamlessly to the underarms with waist shaping happening on the outside of the lace panels. Front and back are separated at the underarms and worked separately before the shoulders are joined together using three-needle bind-off.
