"This lacy blouse is perfect on those hot end-of-summer days. With leafy lace running up the center of the front and branching lace on the back, this tank manages to blend sporty and frilly. Using the body shaping to move the lace columns on the back, the Alyssa tank flatters without being extreme. Project will average between 20-30 hours of knitting. Bust Measurements 29.75 (33.5, 41.5, 45.75, 50)” Cascade Heritage Silk (85% Superwash Merino, 15% silk; 437 yards 400 m/3.5 oz 100 g): 5687 Cockatoo, 2 (2, 3, 3, 4, 4) skeins."
