Lace panels form the side sections of this fitted tank and cause the hem to curve gracefully. Binding off and then picking up stitches just below the bust creates an accent cord, above which gentle bust shaping and short rows create a flattering silhouette; in addition, these short rows allow the tops of the side panels to take their natural shape, clearly displaying the lace motif. The neck and hem are finished with an applied I-cord edging, while the armhole edges are self-finished.

Intermediate: Skills include reading charts,
lace knitting, short rows, three-needle bind-off,
attached I-cord, and grafting I-cord ends. See
Techniques section beginning on page 146 for
photo tutorials on working short rows, attached
I-cord, and grafting I-cord ends.
