Few things say “summer” like white lace, and this eyelet lace tunic is as crisp and cool today as it was when Shirley Paden designed it 20 years ago. The shoulder-hugging yoke is worked in horizontal rib, with shaped decreases forming the neckline. It was originally knit in Classic Elite Yarns’ 100% cotton Provence; we suggest Fibra Natura/ Universal Yarn’s Radiant Cotton as a substitute.

The 20th anniversary version uses 8 (8, 9), 3 1/2oz/100g hanks (each approx 203yd/185m of FibraNatura Radiant Cotton in #824 blank slate.

Sizes: Bust = 36.5 (38, 40.5) inches; 92.5 (96.5, 103) cm
