Cosmic Ray is a cute tank top that will grow on your needles at nearly the speed of light! It’s an easy, colorful and fun project for knitters of all skill levels. It is worked from the top-down to easily make a crop length top as pictured, or a longer garment. The vertical stripes are made using slip stitches, requiring to knit with only one color of yarn on each row. The front and back are identical, and the subtle sweetheart neckline and armholes shaping are made almost without noticing, by following the simple chart. This quick project is made by using DK weight yarn in 2 to 4 colors, using new skeins or leftovers, making it a great stashbuster. This pattern is size inclusive and is available in 8 sizes from 33” to 61” at bust, and should be worn with little to no ease.
