BLOCKED GAUGE
32 sts and 32 rows = 7.5 x 5”/19 x 12.5cm over Main Body pattern.
17 sts = 3.5”/9cm and 32 rows = 5”/12.5cm over Lace Insert.

This beautiful tank-style top includes some of my favorite design details. From the lace side panels to the little “butterfly” twist stitches, this tank is both elegant and easy for any woman to wear.

Leda is knit in the round from the bottom up to the armholes where the front and back shoulders and neckline are worked separately back and forth in rows. We knew Bijou was a given for this design to really bring out the intricate stitch details while remaining comfortable and very wearable. This is another “one in every color” piece.
