This “Smoke” top is used the same lace Stitch Pattern as “Lichen” from my pattern, but with different needle sizes and yarns that are different weights and textures.
I designed it to be a sleeveless top with no body shaping. But the neck shaping is a little more challenging on this one. If you prefer not to do the neck shaping, you can knit the front the same as the back, and your top will have more of a boat neck. Placing a couple of stitch markers on your work to keep track of the stitches as you decrease can make this part easier, though
You could also adjust the length to create a really pretty tunic.
