Let’s Dance is an a-line, cap-sleeve sheath of checkerboard lace – Tilting Blocks Lace – that hop-scotches across its surface throughout. This lace pattern is clean and rhythmic, unfussy, with alternating airy bits that enhance the fabric’s natural drape. Let’s Dance is worked from the top down with minimal shaping, perfect for summer knitting. 1x1 rib trims its hems and neckline.
