Beautiful and easy to work Vine Lace pattern (provided in both chart and written form) makes a simple little lacy tank, perfect for adding that extra layer you’ll need for spring (or any time your outfit needs a little oomph). Worsted weight yarn (tosh dk is a dk/light-worsted) makes this a quick one, too.

The modeled tank is shown with 4” negative ease to open up the lace pattern. Finished item sizes are XS/24”, S/27.5”, M/32”, L/36”, and XL/40”.

Vine Lace (Barbara Walker, A Treasury of Knitting Patterns) is a lovely and simple lace to work in the round, with two rows of plain knitting and a pattern row that is almost the same every other row (one stitch shifts from the end to the beginning of the repeat). If you’re new to lace, this is a very pretty and easy to master pattern with a great transitional garment at the end! Plus, I’ve provided the pattern in both written out and charted forms.

Skills needed include:
Casting on
Binding off in 1x1 rib
3-needle bindoff
Knitting in the round
Reading charts
