This is a flattering, polished tank with an elegantly draped racerback. The drape is created merely by the placement of the decreases. Knit in five skeins of Rowan Lenpur Linen, it is the perfect weight to wear in late Spring and early Summer.

For this pattern, each size is displayed independently; that is, instead of something like “k 30 (34, 38, 42, 46) sts” and so on, each size is separated from the others. The placement of decreases is what makes Dacia special and in the right proportion; and the numbers side of it got crazy. I’ve found it’s least confusing to isolate each size. Because of this, each size fits conveniently on one page.

The front and back straps are worked at the same time with different balls of yarn. The instructions will look something like this:
1. a k1 m1 k2 k2tog* twice k1 b k1 ssk k2* twice m1 k1
where “a” indicates one strap, and “b” indicates the other.
