Baby Leaves Lace Tank Top Knitting Pattern

Here is another baby Leaves Lace Tank Top Knitting Pattern from me. I used Caron Simply Soft Light for this knitted summer tank top, since I have left over from making the baby sock. Guess what, 1 skein of Caron Simply Soft Light yarn is more than enough to make a pair of baby sock and this baby tank top.

Pattern for leaves lace is from here.

Note: I used Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off for the neck area to create the drapey neck.
