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.
