Capricious: this lightweight top can be worn backward or forward depending on your mood. Simple, easy to memorize A-line lace paired with a fitted bodice is a combination made for mild climates and warmer months everywhere perfect all by itself, on top of your favorite cami or under a blazer. Tank is worked from a provisional cast-on that separates the lace and stockinette; bodice is shaped classically from the bottom up & body is constructed top down for easy length modification. The finished knit features a lower neckline on one side (modeled) and higher neckline on the other; wear either as the front. Pointelle lace pattern is written rather than charted. Shown in Size M with 1”/2.5 cm positive ease and lower neckline at front. Select the size closest to your bust measurement, if in-between choose the smaller size. A fitted bust is recommended as generous ease at the hips is provided.
