Dragon scales armor this racerback tank, adding an architectural touch to the otherwise breezy design. Note the sexy scooped neckline, and flared hips that drape airily into points. Knit it up in hemp or bamboo for a flowing summer style. Worked from the bottom up, it features minimal finishing and polished touches like crocheted trim on the neckline and armholes.
