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. S&H for this item is of course free, because it's not being mailed to you. If you would like a printed version of this pattern mailed to you, please convo me, and I'll be happy to set that up.

Payment options

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.

Please contact me for a custom listing if you'd like an order of more than 10 units! I offer discounts for large orders.
If there's anything wrong with your item and you need to return or exchange it, it's extremely important you contact me via Etsy Convo first!
For some issues, I may send you a prepaid return label when you contact me. For all issues, if you don't contact me first the package may get lost because I share my space with folks who don't always remember to tell me that a package came for me or where they stashed it. If I know it's coming I can keep an eye out and know to ask around.

Please note, depending on the issue I may or may not be able to honor returns or exchanges on items that were made specially for you. Please contact me right away via Etsy Convo to discuss.
The durability of my items is very important to me. If your steel cable badge reel or abacus bracelet has developed a problem, please contact me via Etsy Convo right away and send me a picture of what's wrong. Depending on the item and the issue, I may be able to repair it for you. If it's within 30 days of delivery and I can repair it, I'll send you a prepaid label to send it back to me for repair no matter where you are in the world.
Probably! My counting bracelets are made from coils of memory wire that expand and contract around your wrist. If the width of your wrist measured flat at the widest point is between 2" and 3", the bracelet should fit fine with no alterations.
If your wrist is particularly large or small, contact me about making you a custom version. I can probably accommodate you! Contact me via Etsy Convo to discuss.
My turn around time for custom orders varies a lot, but for many items it's often about 3 weeks from when you pay for your custom listing.
Please contact me via Etsy Convo to find out how long it will take for the item you want. During some times of the year you can pay a little extra to get certain items made up faster if I already have the materials on hand.
