Valley Yarns Dogwood is a chic sleeveless top with a hi-lo lace hem and an A-line silhouette. Valley Yarns Westhampton adds to the elegant feel of this tank with its smooth Pima cotton that’s incredibly smooth and has a subtle sheen as well. Dogwood is knit in the round from the bottom up with short rows curving the back hem. At the underarms, the back and front are divided and knit flat separately before joining at the shoulders with a three-needle bind-off. Simple ribbed trims finish the neck and armholes and have a graceful top ready for any occasion this summer! Lace pattern is both charted and written out.
