Pattern Description from Faith, Hope, Love, Knitting: “In keeping with Kim’s personality, style, and petite figure, I’ve designed a little tank top made with a stretchy elastic-blend yarn. The pattern requires some side-shaping, but the snug fit has a lot to do with the springy yarn, which hugs the body. The ribbon that laces up the front can be tightened (or loosened) according to how modest (or sexy) the wearer feels when she puts it on.”
