Lincoln Street in the small town of Calistoga, in the upper reaches of Napa Valley, is sizzling hot June thru September, and where sleeveless is the fashion six months out of the year! A classic sleeveless tank top for women & teens, tweens, children, and men! An extensive size range to accommodate a gauge substitution chart.

A sleeveless top with seamless construction, in combination of knit in-the-round and flat. Shaping is very easy, and edged in single rib & a neat i-cord finish. Neckline is crew style, but pattern includes option for lower neck. Sizes are proportionally the same & unisex, making Lincoln Street suitable for anybody!

Included is an extensive at-a-glance substitution chart for gauges 4sts thru 9sts to the inch, which allows the knitter to use a range of yarn weights from lace to worsted weights, broadening sizes from 22” to 60” in several weights, and freeing knitters to shop for their favorite yarns in any fiber, although it was designed with cotton & linen in mind -- fibers which resonate the best of Spring & Summer knitting!

Fitting Notes: This tank top should be knit with 2” to 4” negative ease in bust, or it will lack a form-fit that this knitwear needs to look its best.
