The Sunnyside Halter is an easy backless halter top that is perfect for hot summer days (and nights). It's designed by Roni Halloran, and is a great project for knitters who want to learn some basic lace stitches. It's designed with Erika Knight Studio Linen and BC Garn Tussah Tweed, with a strand of each held together for a lightweight fabric made of linen and silk.
This is a Row House Tutorial Design, which means that it integrates our knitting skills video to teach you how to make the long tail cast-on and basic lace stitches. It's great for newer knitters who are comfortable knitting and purling and are ready to move to the next level.
