REVISED pattern complete with math, measurements and fill in the blanks for YOUR size- thanks to my beautiful Lelah, CarrieM and Knitrawr! Also to ScratchnSniff, she’s my rock of knitterly support!

Lelah is a strapless (with optional strap directions in pattern) top with a fishtail lace design at the bottom, eyelet ribbon accent at the empire waist. Knit in the round this is an easy lace top for beginners!

Please feel free to experiment with yarn and gauge- You can do this with whatever you wish so long as you do so according to your gauge and measurements. You can even change the lace pattern. This is mod-friendly. Lelah may also be worn as a skirt or a dress, just add pattern repeats.

Do you need help with mods? Check out my old friend Lucia’s site here- http://www.thedietdiary.com/knittingfiend/Tops/tubeTop.html she has a generator you can enter your gauge in, also you can make it slimmer or more flared with her calculator, easy!

Pattern can be found at Craftster but please download the pdf as the original is a mess and hard to follow.
