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.
This top was made with a simple combination of geometric figures: triangle and diagonals and combined two colours: earthy brown color and turquoise sky colour:
Triangle pattern creates an optical illusion that the top is fitting tightly around the waist (the top is loose fitting). The garment widens towards the bottom and slightly drapes around hips.
