This soft & open tank is worked flat in two pieces. The lace is a simple combination of knit two together and yarn overs, and is bordered by a stockinette stitch selvedge edge. The lace stretches in both directions to allow for a better fit, and waist shaping is incorporated into the lace pattern. The top of the piece is worked in a simple, loose-gauge seed stitch with neckline and armhole edgings matching the seed stitch in a contrasting color.
