notes
Tank is worked from the top down, beginning with the draped front neckline. Stitches are picked up along sides of front shoulder for back shoulder, and stitches are cast on for back neck. Front and back are worked flat in garter stitch to underbust, joined in the round to work skirt in stockinette stitch, then split again for garter stitch hem. An applied i-cord edge gives a clean finish to armholes and back neckline.

skills required
Long-tail, cable, and knitted cast ons, lifted increases, seaming, short rows (links provided), working in the round, decreasing.
