Some of my favorite days growing up were visits to port towns along the New England coast. I spent several happy weekends at my friend’s home in Rockport. In the off season we’d watch the boats, dive into the frigid ocean, play on the docks, help the neighbors dig for clams—everything we couldn’t do in my own small town further inland.

In summer there was more fun to be had—tourist watching, wandering through shops, playing on the beach, cooking out, and eating our weight in ice cream and salt water taffy. The Rockport Tank is perfect for those kinds of summertime adventures.

The Rockport Tank is worked in one piece from the bottom up. The bottom edge features a twisted rib and lace detail, and the tank is worked in the round to the underarms. The upper front and back are finished flat, then topped off with i-cord straps.

Lace is both charted and written out.
