My design ideas and advice: This is a simple lace top in simple shapes. It has very little shaping so perfect for those new to lace work and want a simple pattern to add colour and texture to your wardrobe. It’s great to wear over short or long sleeved tops or over vest tops for those really hot days.
The design is cropped but the perfect thing about this pattern is that you can knit it as long or as short as you want.
