Pattern Description from “This casual tank is worked in a simple garter-rib pattern. The ribs on the back are vertical, but paired decreases at the center front, offset by single increases at each side edge, cause the ribs to form a chevron pattern and point at the lower front edge. The front neck is bound off in a single row—the stitch pattern forms the V shape. The neck and armhole edges are finished with a row of single crochet.”
