This fun tank top features a unique way of seaming leaving open lacework along the sides and bottom. The Everly Tank is created with a front and back panel, made bottom up, with a small section added to the bottom with the lace seaming. The sides are then edged and seamed the same way. Final edging is added to the neckline and straps. This pattern looks great in one color or two, which will give your laced seaming a more defined look.

SPECIAL STITCHES

Fhdc - foundation half double crochet
Chain 2 (does NOT count as first fhdc). Yarn over and insert hook in 2nd chain from hook. Yarn over and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 1 loop creating a chain, (this is an important step but easy to forget). Yarn over again and pull through all three loops on hook. This completes the first fhdc. To stitch the next fhdc, yarn over and insert the hook into the chain made in the 2nd fhdc and repeat from.

Yarn over (YO), insert hook into first stitch (st), pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), insert hook into next st, pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), YO, pull through first 2 loops, YO and pull through remaining 3 loops on hook

• Sides are labeled as they will be when worn.
• Any additional notes in the pattern will be bolded and italicized.
• This item will benefit greatly from blocking.
