This tank uses a mixture of knit and crochet techniques for a unique look and fit! Perfect for a summer day, or as a layering piece in winter, this tank was created to be your go-to top with a bit of flowy, floaty positive ease. Even better? It’s flattering on all body types.

The Sypirogyra Tank is constructed using Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton yarn. Alternative weight 4 cotton yarn works for this pattern as well, but it may not look exactly the same. Note that cotton yarn shrinks somewhat upon first washing, so the fit of your garment will change slightly when washed (recommended before first wear).

If you want to use a non-cotton yarn that does not shrink, or if you are between sizes, consider sizing down.

Sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL) (2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL)
Bust sizes: 30” (34”, 38”, 42”, 46”) (50”, 54”, 58”, 62”)
Ease: positive ease of approx. 10” built in on top of bust size (finished garment will measure ~10” larger than bust size in the non-mesh portion of the top)

Model is 5’7” with a 39” bust wearing size Medium (48” finished garment size in the non-mesh portion of the top).

Difficulty: easy (both knit and crochet)
