Summer Sun Halter Neck Top
Kitted halter neck top in stockinette stitch with a feminine center Japanese style cable and lace pattern (charted).
It uses i-cord edging and i-cord string for finer shaping. Knitted top down, front and back separately (with a back opening for centering the string), then joining the pieces to complete the garment in the round. The string tube at the neck is worked based on provisional cast on (no sewing required).
The pattern is easily adaptable to any sport or 4ply (mostly cotton/cotton based) yarn but the drapery will benefit from silk/viscose blends.
The pattern is suitable for adventurous/advanced beginners and/or intermediate knitters.
