This scoop-neck linen tank features a subtle stitch pattern, an empire silhouette, and rolled edges. A purl ridge marks the empire band. Stitches are later picked up along this purl ridge to form a rolled edge that matches the hem, neck, and armbands.
Although this yarn’s ball band says to handwash and lay flat to dry, I prefer the softness linen acquires after vigorous washing and drying. To compensate for the shrinkage, you’ll want to measure the gauge before and after machine washing and drying, and count rows instead of inches as you knit. If you don’t want to bother with the two different gauges, gently handwash your garment in lukewarm water and lay it flat to dry instead.
