Parsley is an easy, breezy tank with lots of beautiful details. It has a split hem with twisted rib faux cables travelling up the side panels. Tubular selvedges frame the armholes beautifully.

The tank is constructed seamlessly from the bottom up. The rib is knitted separately before joining for the body. It is then knitted in the round until the armholes when the front and back are knit separately and joined at the shoulders using a three-needle bind-off. The neck trim is picked up and knitted in the round.
