Light and airy like a summer breeze rippling the surface of your lemonade, this curve-caressing summer tanktop is knit slightly looser than recommended gauge in a breathable cotton blend for maximum summer comfort. There is no shaping whatsoever - the bias knit does it all - so it flatters every body without the need to do any math. It has an open back, but is carefully made to conceal your favorite comfy tshirt bra. The simplicity of design makes this top a perfect choice for a beginner project or TV knitting, but details like seed stitch edging and all-over striping stave off boredom. With minimal finishing and a loose gauge, it’s also good for last minute gifting or instant gratification knitting – intermediate knitters can usually finish it in a crafting weekend. If you like, knit the straps longer and turn it into a cross-back top with a little extra flutter in the neckline and back.

This listing is for the pattern to knit this top, delivered as a 4-page PDF. You will receive a download link after checkout.
