As the name suggests, Valace is a poised, gracious, and reserved cotton top. It hugs, it is breezy, it highlights lace knitting skills, and shows off modern styling with the high-low border. Garter stitches are framing at the front V-neck, the back neck, all bottom borders, and up on shirt side seams and arm seams. The V-neck is flattering, and the all a-round garter stitch frame provides solid shaping for this thoughtful design. The pattern sizes are S (M, L, XL, XXL) and shown in size Small.
Please contact me here on ravelry or e-mail: if you want help with the lace sections. Especially the V-neck decreases and arm increases are difficult to track. I have an excel sheet available that details the lace stitches on those V-neck and arm edges.
