Learn to knit your own lace tank top with step-by-step videos, tips and techniques and professional finishing advice from Carol Feller.
Introducing the Huevos Tank Top
Step into summer with a go-to lace project. Huevos is fun to wear but also the perfect wip to have in your project bag for those hot summer days. The tank top is easy to layer and is also the type of project you want to have with you so that you change quickly into something cooler.
But I've never knit lace before!
This is an excellent introduction to lace knitting with detailed directions and full written and charted stitch pattern. You can see each new section or technique being worked in the accompanying videos which you can pause and watch as many times as you like.
You can also ask questions under each section if you need an extra bit of help and you have access to our workshop forums so you can meet other knitters working on the same project as you!
What's covered in this workshop?
This Teachable course goes hand-in-hand with the written Huevos knitting pattern so you'll never be left wondering how to approach a section.
Some of the techniques covered in this course are:
- Knitting with lace
- Methods of tracking lace
- Working lace decreases
- Short rows
- Working the armhole decreases and increases
- 3 needle bind-off
Is there a yarn kit available?
Huevos is knit using our Coral yarn which you can find here. It's a fingering cotton yarn with a beautiful depth of colour and has become a firm favourite for our summer knits.

As with many Irish children she learned to knit while still in primary school and spent many years knitting cardigans for her dolls and occasionally herself. There is a strong history of crafting in her family; her mother sewed much of her clothes, her grandmother was an expert knitter and her aunt ran a knitting shop in Dublin.
Carol trained initially as a textile artist and then as a structural engineer. While both of these backgrounds are very different the influences can be seen in her design work which is well-shaped, flattering to wear and enjoyable to knit. She strives to design clothing with a difference: not overly complex, but still giving a very unique end product. She likes to work with different construction methods, so long as they enhance the knitting experience and make for a more intuitively put-together knitted item.
Carol has been widely published in books and magazine and travels the world teaching in yarn shops and fibre festivals. The classes she teaches cover a wide range of subjects from cables and chart reading, through garment shaping and customisation right through to short rows and colourwork. In her classes you'll move from learning the basics to refining your knitting skills and fixing problems.
