This 90’s inspired fitted summer tank features a high neckline, triangular lacework, and I-Cord finishing. The construction is knit from the top down and works up quickly. Wear it as it is for a gorgeous warm-weather tank, crop it shorter to make a bralette, or layer it with a cute cardigan for cooler seasons. The lace section at the bottom can be omitted for beginner knitters or true committed minimalists.

This pattern is priced at a sliding scale. It’s important to me to put value on the effort put into this pattern design while prioritizing financial accessibility. Please pay what you are able and use the code ROSA50 to purchase the pattern at 50% off.
