May is the month when the days start to really warm up for much of the US and Europe—the month when dancers of all types come out of their winter stupor and take to the streets and fields to celebrate the return of spring and life. This tank top is knit in the lovely fingering-weight Baah La Jolla yarn, making it light and airy for the hottest weather. The central cable stitch uses dropped stitches to further play with the idea of airy solidity.

Knit in the round from the bottom up, it has a hint of an A-line shape that gives you a bit more room in the hips, some light waist shaping, and a smidge of negative ease in the bust.
