Notes
Due to the scale of the stitches, the cast-on edge will be prominent, so be mindful of each stitch as you’re casting on and take care to create as consistent and attractive an edge as you can.

Back and front are worked from the bottom up, flat to the split hem, then joined in the round to underarm, then separated again, worked to shoulders, and seamed.

To get an accurate measurement in a thick and thin yarn, measure your gauge over many different places around the swatch, and take the average of the numbers you find.

Larger sizes may wish to use a longer circular needle to accommodate the larger number of stitches.

After completing your tank, if you find the thick and thin nature of the yarn has created any too thin areas in the fabric, use a thicker tail of yarn and work in duplicate stitch to fill in as desired.
