A floral lace pattern adorns the upper
front and back of this sleeveless tank,
and the flower “stems” are carried into
the body of the tank, creating flattering
vertical lines. All edgings are
self-finished; underarm gussets allow the
armhole edgings to continue unbroken
from underarm to shoulder, while keeping
the armhole from being too deep.

Madaket is a small village on Nantucket
Island, and includes a beach and harbor
of the same name. It’s easy to get there
from Nantucket town: just take Main
Street to Madaket Road, and head
west! The stitch pattern I used for this
tank reminds me of the densely layered
gardens found in the compact yards of
many Nantucket homes.

Worked in the round from the bottom
up to the armholes.
