Pattern description from The Best of Interweave Knits: “Inspired by an article on knitted ruffles by Pam Allen in the Summer 2002 issue of Interweave Knits, Leigh Radford designed a flirty linen tank with ruffle details. The front and back are worked in a slimming rib pattern. After the font is knitted, stitches are picked up for a series of ruffles along the wide center front panel. For a simple edge that doesn’t distract from the ruffles, Leigh worked narrow I-cord around the neckline and added a keyhole opening with button closure at the back.”
