Recently I have completed another knit top with Shetland lace:
It was made in size XL as a present to my neighbour. I used zigzags and rhombuses as in my previous knit top, but changed the edge and the neckline. With these shoulders it’s certainly easier to find a suitable bra : ).
The pattern was made earlier for the halter neck top with the same zigzag and rhombus patterns:
This top looks great with a bikini – you will get lots of admiring glances on a beach resort! It takes not much place in your travel luggage, is very light (weighs 100 gr only), and has a perfect & practical design for the hot summer – it leaves your shoulders free so you would not suffer from the heat too much.
The halter neck top is stretchy and fits a woman with the following circumferences:
Bust 36-41 inch; 92-105 cm
Waist 29-33 inch; 75-90 cm
Hips 37-41 inch; 94-105 cm
Detailed PATTERN for this halter neck top can be downloaded here:
To make the same neckline as I did for my neighbour simply decrease 2 rhombuses for the armholes as described in the PDF and then knit straight up to the neckline. Sew shoulder seams – in each shoulder join one rhombus of the front with respective rhombus in the back.
