Perfect to wear at a seaside retreat, Sandpiper will keep you looking cool and chic during warm summer days. The color-nature of Cotton Supreme Waves adds an element of visual interest and brings new life to the classic ribbed tank.

This tank is very stretchy due to the Rib stitch pattern used; choose a bust size with approx. 1-2” of negative ease, or if you are in between sizes, opt for the smaller size for a more fitted appearance.
This tank is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up. Stitches for the neckline and armholes are picked up and worked in the round after seaming.

Cotton Supreme Waves is a yarn featuring slow color shifts. To ensure your project looks as close to the sample as possible and/or the stripes match up, when starting the Back/Front and breaking and rejoining yarn, be sure to visually match the point at which you’re starting from and/or rejoining. This may require you to wind off some yarn. We promise the results are worth the effort!
