The lightweight Netted Tank Top shows off the great qualities of 100% hemp yarn. The pattern, which is available in nine sizes, is worked in the round from the bottom up and is mostly stockinette stitch aside from a triangular drop stitch panel at the back neck. Throw a flannel over this lovely layering piece on chilly spring mornings or wear over a long-sleeved shirt.
