Galsang flowers are common wildflowers with strong vitality and withstand harsh environments on the Tibetan plateau. In Tibetan, Galsang means good times or happiness, so the Galsang flower is also called the flower of happiness.

Knitted with Shangdrok Silky Yak, this seamless top-down tank top has a good balance of coolness and warmth against the skin. The soft fabric has a lovely sheen and drape that express the quality of a yarn made with smooth silk and precious yak fibres. It is so comfortable that you will love wearing it close to the skin. The neckline and armholes are designed for comfort and ease of movement. When you need more cover, layer a light shawl or a pullover with shawl-like lightness that stays on your body, like the Wild Forests pullover. One of the yarns used in Wild Forests is Shangdrok Silk Yak. Galsang and Wild Forests are designed to go with each other in style, material and in their natural colours.

Edge stitches are designed to finish neatly, so there is no need to pick up stitches and knit any finishing around necklines and armholes. Have fun knitting a 3-row flower lace on the neck and hem, the only decorative detail on this tank top. Its simplicity makes it easy to style with different outfits.

May the flowers bless you with good times and happiness.

The right and left shoulders of the back are worked from the top with short row shaping. A flower lace joins both sides to form the neckline before the back continues with further shaping for the armholes. The front is picked up and knitted from the shoulders of the back. The same flower lace joins both shoulders to form the neckline. After the front and back are joined at the underarm, the piece is worked in the round to the hem. The hem is finished with the flower lace.

A video tutorial demonstrates how to knit the flower stitch.
