This lace-ribbed tank is knit from the bottom up in two coordinating colors of luscious Panda Silk DK. The beautiful sheen and soft drape of this yarn make it wonderful to wear next to the skin or over a thin camisole on a beautiful summer day.

The simple lace pattern is easy to memorize. A wide variety of sizes is provided from XS through 3X (30.5 through 54.5 inches).

Note: The photo of the original model garment shows a slightly different eyelet stitch in the body of the tank top. We found that it had a tendency to bias since both the decreases were K2tog decreases and leaned the same way. The pattern has been changed to balance out the lean with a K2tog in row 1 and a SSK in row 3. So the eyelet pattern will look slightly different in the version from the pattern stitch shown above, but it will be balanced more evenly. The revised stitch is shown in the swatch shown in the bottom left photo.
