Summer Tank Pattern

Summer Tank (Intermediate in difficulty) by Gudrun Johnston
This tank is worked from the top down beginning with the folded neckband. The front and back are worked separately to the underarm after which the piece is worked in the round to the end. This tank is exactly the same front and back. The yarn is machine washable and doesn’t need re-blocking after each washing.

2-4 [4-6,6-8] shown in size 6-8
As this is a loose fitting garment I’ve made the sizes to accommodate a couple of different ages

Chest: 25 [26, 28,] inches
Length: 11.5 [12.5,14.5] inches (this is from neckband to longest point at front)

Holy that is beautiful!

I'm still vacillating over what colour to make my hip in hemp skirt.

This helps me narrow it down a bit.

I would love it if you suggested more combinations for the colour shy (or impaired)!
