Pattern Description:

My current home, Columbia, is the location of Missouri's largest state college. The style here is anything-goes, and while lounging at one of my favorite coffee shops it's not uncommon for me to see students walking about in pajamas, sweat pants, or something that looks like the wearer should be headed to a period costume party. Inspired to make something that was at once comfortable, casual and stylish, I created this one-shoulder tank with a gentle A-line shape topped with a bit of simple lace. Worked in one seamless piece from the top down, the stockinette body provides plenty of mindless, post-study knitting, while a lace ruff provides some pizzazz and technical difficulty. Want your ruff a bit rufflier? Simple instructions are included for that modification.

6-page PDF includes both a chart and written instructions for the lace.
