This is the third design in the West Coast Swing Collection. The other designs are Flying Lindy (socks), Sugar Push (fingerless mitts), and Basket Whip (cowl). Some swing dancers enjoy adding a little Syncopation to their steps; they think it makes the dance more fun. Having a little lace near the hem of this basic top makes it more fun to knit and to wear. This tank top can be worn alone, under a cardigan, over a thin blouse, or however you choose. Sweater can be knit in a DK or worsted weight yarn, anything that would ordinarily knit up at 4.5 to 5 stitches per inch. Sweater fits best with somewhere between 2 and 4 inches of negative ease.
