Lacy Tanks

Dainty Lace Tank TopWe love how light and lacy these tanks are. The lacy pattern means you might need to wear another shirt underneath, but it's completely worth it for the gorgeous, airy designs. They also work as fantastic swimsuit coverups out on the beach, so knit a few up for your vacation! Each lacy tank top pattern here isn't just for the summer; they're just as wonderful in the spring underneath a cardigan or alone on the warmer days, so don't feel restricted.
