Who said that summer isn’t a good season for knitting? Aya Tank Top is the perfect pattern to knit and wear under the sun! With a light blend of cotton, linen or even merino, this feminine tank top is easy and quick to knit, and is cute and comfortable.

Worked from the top down, the front of this sleeveless top starts with a lace section that pairs as an easy way to create a flattering sweetheart neckline, while the slight race back is comfortable to wear. From the underarm to the bottom, the top is worked in the round in simple, almost plain stockinette rounds, ending with a simple lace pattern at the bottom. The straps are knit as icords, joining the front and back at the shoulders.

Advanced beginner - basic stitches, basic lace, knitting in the round, icords.


  • Written pattern, including a chart for the top lace pattern and a chart transcription.
  • Icord instructions are provided.
  • 3 waistline options are provided: straight, fitted shape (pictured) and a-line.
