From the front this tank appears to have a simple A-line shape, but in fact the flared “skirt” wraps around the sides and then flows into elongated wings that cross over the back, joining the front at the opposite shoulder. A linen blend yarn ensures that the skirt drapes gracefully. This tank can be worn on its own or over another layer; try wearing it backwards if you are feeling adventurous!

Intermediate: Skills include picking up stitches,
short rows, and three-needle bind-off. See
Techniques section beginning on page 146
for photo tutorials on picking up stitches and
working short rows.

Shown in Size S with +1 “/2.5 cm ease. Intended to fit with -2”/5 cm to +2”/5 cm ease at bust.

• Center piece is worked first
• Stitches are picked up along lower sides of
center piece for side pieces
• Center and sides are joined at the opposite
shoulders, causing the side pieces to overlap
• All edges are self-finished

Because of the unusual construction, many
of the standard garment measurements are
approximate. Side pieces are constructed so
that they can be lengthened if necessary to
adjust the fit.
