Worked in yarn made from recycled denim, this boat-neck shell is as comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans, with crocheted lace to soften the neckline. Worked in two rectangles, this crocheted top can be modified for your perfect fit: make it longer or shorter, modify the armhole depth, add waist shaping.

I am making this sweater now and it seems the lace pattern needs a correction. In row 2, there is no single crochet space to connect to if you are skipping the cluster. : (  I think I will go back and add some. The first row also seems a bit tight as if it is missing something. The instructions are not very clear for the cluster in parenthesis. So frustrating.
