The Leora V-Neck Tank is from the book Warm Days, Cool Knits by Corrina Ferguson and has a delicate lace neckline with a garter stitch hem. Cool fingering-weight linen yarn creates a tank that’s substantial enough to be worn alone but light enough to keep you comfortable in the summer sun. The wide straps of the tank cover bra straps and save you from that torture device called a strapless bra. Lace detailing gives it feminine charm.
Gift Set includes Warm Days, Cool Knits book (pattern inside) and selected yarn.
