I’m a huge fan of little details. This tank is simple stockinette but has a really cool neckline that’s fun to execute. It’s a fast knit, very summer friendly, looks great layered over a turtle neck in the colder months, and is reversible. You can choose to wear the deeper scoop to the front or the back, depending on what part of you wants more exposure that day.

This tank was originally knit with Needful Yarns Kim (55% cotton, 45% acrylic, each approximately 1¾ oz (50g) and 107 yd 96m), in color 340 ivory. This yarn is discontinued but many yarns can be substituted. Matching the fiber construction exactly is not necessary however, matching gauge is. Look for a cotton substitute to keep it a summer weight garment. Check out yarnsub.com for substitution ideas.

This tank is form-fitting: it will stretch 3’’ (7.5cm) in circumference when worn.
