Brigid's Cross

5.00

Lovely summer boat-neck style top with dropped cap sleeves. The open Brigid’s Cross Lace shows a bit of skin, while the peppercorn pattern worked on a stocking stitch background offers modesty.  The eyelette cable ribbing adds to the feminine aspect of this easy to make garment. The back and front are made alike. Once the pieces are made, the shoulder seams are grafted using the Kitchener Stitch for asmooth finish. All ready for warmer days!
