Refined Arches Tabard could be described as lightweight warmth wrapped up in a sweet, lace topper. This easy fitting top features two complimentary lace patterns, and flowing ease that goes equally well with jeans or skirts. Knitting is a breeze with no shaping within the lace - even the neckline is shaped with blocking instead of decreases.

Knit from the bottom up then split to work the front and back separately, which are identical. Join the shoulders with 3-needle bind-off and adding the trims completes the knitting. Then follow the blocking directions to shape Refined Arches Tabard. The length is designed to touch the top of your hips and can easily be lengthened if desired.

The pattern is written with charts for the lace patterns.
