With a loose drape, deep armholes, and a cropped hem, the Beach Tank is a breeze to knit and wear.

Knit it with two yarns held together for a marled effect, or with one thicker-weight yarn for a simple solid look. Make a tank in every color and rock ‘em at the boardwalk with some high-waist denim, clog sandals and your sassiest shades.
