OVERVIEW 

When the temperatures soar, only a tank top will do. But you’ll reach for this classic tank all year round. Layer it over a shirt or a tee for a bit of extra color, texture, and warmth. With its comfortable shaping and clean lines, it will easily pair with your jeans, shorts and skirts. 

This top is knit in one piece. The body is knit in the round to the armholes, then divided and the front and back worked separately to the shoulder seams. It features subtle A-line shaping and a modest V-neck. 

Use leftover yarns to create a striped tank, or reach for a gradient yarn to create a soft color change effect.  You could even try a textured yarn to create a signature piece for your wardrobe.  The possibilities for this tank really are endless.
