Queen Anne's Lace
Phoenix Bess Queen Anne’s Lace
This year’s leggy look demands a long silhouette. Ideal for intermediate knitters, this luxurious lace trimmed tunic is just the ticket. Knit in a deliciously soft wool (you will swear it’s angora!) that begs to be petted, the tunic sports a lace cowl and romantic lace bell sleeves worked in a coordinating beaded wool. Like tiny crystalline stars, the beads nestle, twinkling within the lacework that is knit on larger needles for plenty of pop.
Couture inspired detailing makes this garment a natural choice for the office, evening and dressy casual occasions. The tunic generously falls to mid-thigh for a line that is slimming and perfectly proportioned, and the dainty little picot-turned hem lays flat against your leggings, pencil skirt or skinny jeans. The sleeves and body are knit in the round to the armholes, then worked flat across the front and back to the shoulder bind off. The easy lace cowl is knitted wrong side out to showcase the beaded design at its best when turned down. The matching bells on snug fitting sleeves drape all the way to the mid-fingers, juxtaposing romantic glamour with modern sleek styling.
