A simple seamless easy to knit cotton summer apron style top.

The skirt of the top features a lace pattern reminiscent of crochet. The top features crossover straps and a tie back making it both adjustable and likely to last more than the one summer.

This garment is knit from the bottom up all in one piece.

Stitches are cast on at the top of the skirt to knit the back tie straps. The bodice is shaped with decreases and the cross-over straps knit last.

The edging is integrated into the skirt lace pattern.

Lace pattern has both chart and written instructions.
