A simple lace stitch and beautiful scooped neckline are all the embellishments needed when you knit this tank in a gorgeously hand-dyed yarn.
Front and back are knit from the bottom up with a shaped hem and an A-line shape that drapes beautifully when worn.
Shaping continues with deep armholes and scooped front and back necklines. The tank finishes with simple unfinished edges and thin straps.
Knit this tank in your favorite hand-dyed fingering-weight yarn. Sample is knit in Tosh Merino Light from Madelinetosh in Night Bloom (and the smallest size uses less than 2 hanks!).
This tank is ideal under your work blazer or jacket, on its own with fabulous jewelry, or as a layer over a spaghetti-strap tank or dress.
