Get your summer lace on with the beautiful and breezy Seashell Tank from Knitscene Summer 2018. A front lace panel and an I-cord drawstring threaded through crochet loops in the back give the top a romantic aesthetic.
This tank is worked in a modular fashion. First the front lace panel is worked in the round from the center out, then the sides and back are cast on and worked to the underarm, leaving an opening for the lace panel. The front is worked by picking up stitches along the lace panel and working toward the neck and shoulders, then the back is worked.
