From the pattern: “Do you have a pile of dirty handknits piling up, waiting for you to have time to wash them by hand? Who says that easy-care handknits are only for babies and mon-knitters? This simple A-line shell can be worn as a tank top or a vest, and is designed for maximum washability and wearability.”

This pattern works well with any durable heavy worsted- or aran-weight summer yarn. (True confessions: when I first designed this, long before I knew better, I used Red Heart Super Saver. Turns out it gets really soft in the wash.)
