You can visit the Delmarva Peninsula all year round. As such, you’ll need something your kids can wear no matter the season when you hit Dewey Beach. This simple tank top can be worn alone in the summer or paired with a long-sleeved tee and over leggings in the winter, too. The straps are knit flat in basic garter stitch, while the textured body is worked in the round in a basket weave stitch. The garment is knit from the bottom up. Offered in 4 sizes and knit in Malabrigo Rios, Dewey is ideal for little girls and big girls alike.

Sizes: 12/18M (2T/3T, 5/6, 7/8) or approximate chest measurements of 19 (22, 24, 26 inches.

Please note that there is a fair amount of stretch to basketweave and garter stitch. The 2T/3T size can easily fit a slender 4T, though you may want to add additional length.

Needles: US 6 (4.0 mm) circular needle, 24 inches long

Additional notions: Darning needle, stitch markers
