09-019 Reticulated Tank Top (Crochet)

"Blocks and bars ornament this lacy, openwork top," says Temple. "Worked side to side in a soft, cotton yarn, you can toss it over a bathing suit, T-shirt, or another tank top to quickly dress up your most casual summer look." Are we Canadians the only ones to see ways to wear this gem year-round? Why not layer it over a long-sleeved tee and under a blazer for a nouveau vest? You need one in candy pink for Valentine's Day (when you wear it as lingerie), in black over an orange slinky thing at Hallowe'en, in green for St. Patrick's Day...

Gauge given is approximately 16 sts and 8 rows to 4"/10cm in pattern stitch on a G/6/4mm hook. "Pattern is very stretchy so exact gauge is not critical," notes Temple. American crochet terminology.
