This tank is a quick project knit in the round from the bottom up with the front and back shoulders and necklines worked separately. A quick three-needle bind off at the shoulders is all the finishing you will need. Weave in a few ends and you have a new staple for your wardrobe. Special attention has been paid to the front and back necklines as well as the armholes to ensure comfortable wearing without shoulders that slip around. From top to bottom, this piece sits comfortably and looks FAB on your body.

What started as a simple tank that was intended to help round out the designs in this book quickly turned into a very special piece when we decided to make that simple tank in Mango Moon Yarn’s sumptuous Silk Ribbon.
