A light and lacy tank perfect for a Summer evening. With deep lace borders and a wide rib bodice, this delicate top will have you feeling the breeze and showing off your tan. This circular knit starts with the lace panel bottom, then moves up the garment ending with delicate shoulder straps. With a slight A shape, it will certainly fit and flatter!

This tank top shows off the Frost Flowers lace stitch to perfection.


1) In the chart key the definition for p2tog tbl should read: “purl 2 stitches together through the back loop.”

2) The armhole borders are 4 stitches wide in stockinette. Under “Shape Back Armhole and Yoke” after “Next Row, (RS): …” the WS row instruction is missing. It should be: “WS: p4, maintain patt to last 4 sts, p4.”

3) Under “Shape Front Armhole and Yoke”, the single decrease section (4th paragraph) should read: “WS: p4, maintain patt to last 4 sts, p4.”

4)Under “Side Shaping” the last paragraph should read: Note: In the last dec rnd for size Small and the last 2 dec rnds for size Large, the dec will meet up with the purl channel of the Wide Rib pat at each end of the back. Maintain the 2-st purl channel and work the dec using the 2 knit sts next to it. After side decreases, 7 knit sts remain between purl channels for size Small; 3 for size Large, at each side bodice.

5) Under “Shape Front Armhole and Yoke, Sizes M and L only:…” change to this: Sizes M and L only: Work 4-st border, Wide Rib and 38-st Floral Lace Panel as follows: Row 1 (RS): k4, work Wide Rib for (4,6) sts, place marker, work row 1 of lace panel, place marker, work Wide Rib for (4,6) sts, k4. Row 2: p4, work Wide Rib to marker, sm, work row 2 of lace panel, sm, work Wide Rib to last 4 sts, p4. (54, 58) sts. Cont even in pat as established through RS row 23 of Floral Lace Panel.

Tip: In Chart A, a few rounds start and end with yarn overs, thereby resulting in double yarn overs. On the next round (WS), work double yarn overs by knitting the first and purling the second.
