Quince & Co Laureline Tank Project
Delicate and breezy, Audrey Borrego’s Laureline is named after the Laurus Nobilis, or Laurel plant – inspired by this top’s intricately cabled trim resembling graceful, twisting leaves. Quince & Co Sparrow, shown here in colorway Fen, is an ideal choice to show off Laureline’s sophisticated stitchwork. It is knit from the bottom up with front and back hems crafted flat separately and then joined to work in the round. Elegant texturing, a scooped back and a hi-lo hemline turn an otherwise basic staple into a refined statement piece.
Laureline is worked from the bottom up, starting with back and front hems which are knitted flat separately. The hems are joined and the body is worked in the round to the armholes. Front and Back are separated at the armholes and worked flat separately, decreasing on the neck edge to the shoulder straps. A double knitted edge is worked both along the armhole and neckline. These edges then form the shoulder straps which are joined together to complete the top. Charts and line-by-line instructions included in the pattern. Note: the tension is worked fairly tight in this top so you likely will not need to wear a cami under it to mitigate peek-a-boos.
