This ultra-wearable tank has just the right mix of interesting technique and plain knitting. Front and Back begin with a lace and garter stitch hem that is knit sideways. The main body stitches are picked up from the side of the hem, and short-rows are worked to shape a gently curved hem. The piece is worked upward in twisted stockinette, which adds just the right amount of texture to this already unique yarn. Simple garter stitch edgings finish off neck and armhole.
