Springy is a simple singlet design featuring contrasting I-cord straps and cabled edging for a feminine feel. Depending on yarn choice, the tank top can be great on it’s own for mild weather or as a warm base layer under a cardigan.

Construction is bottom up, in the round with the majority completed in a 2x2 rib. The cable edging is then added using short rows and the straps knit separately. The pattern is easily customizable for different sizes.
