Inspired by the natural pathways carved into rivers and streams, Shoals is a modern ribbed tank with a split hi-lo hem and details that accent your curves. The ridges formed by the ribbing remind us of water rushing through shallow shoals on barefoot creek days. This is a versatile tank - wearable alone on a humid southern day, or as a layering piece for cooler evenings in more arid climes.

Shoals is knit in pieces from the bottom up and seamed. An I-Cord bind-off neatly adorns the neck and armhole edges.
