April 2018
Worsted (9 wpi) ?
19 stitches and 26 rows = 4 inches
in stockinette stitch
US 7 - 4.5 mm
570 - 1017 yards (521 - 930 m)
Garment bust measurement: 29 1/2 (32 3/4, 37, 41 1/4, 44 3/4, 48 3/4, 53)"/75 (83.5, 94, 105, 113.5, 124, 135) cm.

The boldly colored stranded yoke is the focal point of this tank. In traditional Fair Isle fashion, only two colors are worked on each round, although a total of four different colors are used. Flattering cut-in armholes angle to meet the rounded yoke, suggesting a halter top but with more coverage. A narrow attached I-cord gives all garment edges a neat finish.
