Sleek Ribs Tank
Pattern Description form Interweave Knits, Summer 2005: “Therese Chynoweth uses columns of decreases and increases in a one-by-one rib pattern to create a dramatic chevron design for an otherwise straightforward tank. The back, worked in simple, vertical ribs, follows the natural tendency of ribbed fabric to draw in for a close fit. The body of the tank is worked in the round to the armholes, then the front and back are divided and worked separately (back and forth in rows) to the shoulders. The straps crisscross in the back for a secure fit.”
