Are you ready for the magic of the growing season? The bright sunny days, flower gardens, fireflies, and refreshing dips? Then get ready for the Summer Court Tank!! This tank is inspired by the book series, “A Court Of Thorns And Roses” by Sarah J. Maas, and the beautiful summery court within.

This tank has an oversized fit and a cropped look, perfect for wearing with shorts, skirts, and dresses while enjoying breezy summer days.

Pattern comes with two bust options for either a basic v-neck, or a plunging v-neck to customize for each and every body!!! The point is, it’s all about you, and how the fit makes you feel!!


(Smaller needle) Body: US size 2 / 2.75 mm 16”-40”/40-100 cm circular needles to be worked in the round, depending on cord length needed.

(Larger needle) Body: US size 5 / 3.75 mm and 16”-40”/40-100 cm circular needle to be worked in the round, depending on cord length needed.

(Or needles to obtain gauge)

Please note: many knitters experience a difference in tension between stockinette knit in the round and knit flat. Please be sure to check that your gauge does not differ over the various sections of the pattern. You may need to change needle size to maintain gauge in the worked-flat sections.

Gauge : 24 sts and 36 rows over 4” / 10 cm worked in stockinette in the Rnd/flat on Larger Body Needles.
Sizes : 12 mo (2 yrs, 4 yrs, 6 yrs, 8 yrs, 10 yrs)
Finished Bust Circumference Measurements : (ease is built into the finished measurement)

20 (24, 26, 29, 30.5, 34)” / 51 (61, 66, 73.5, 77.5, 86.5) cm

Recommended finished ease is 2-6” / 5-10 cm of positive ease. 2” positive ease for the 12 month size (for a closer fit); 3” of positive ease for sizes 2 & 4; 4” of positive ease for sizes 6 & 8; and 6” of positive ease for the size 10. This all helps transition nicely to the adult sizes, but you can adjust for less positive ease for fit, and knit the length of overall size desired.

Plunging V-Neck Option: 148 (188, 215, 264, 302, 392) yards / 135 (172, 197, 241, 276, 358) meters

Notes :
This sweater is knit bottom up, starting with the lace section, then knitting in stockinette until the front and back separation, using circular needles worked in the round. You will then work the garment flat. The back will be using an icord cast off starting at the underarm, and the front will be knit up, each side separately. The straps will be knit last, and attached at the top of the shoulder from held stitches in the front, and picked up stitches from where you want your straps to be in the back. Lace chart will be found on the last page.

To attach the beads, you will be using the Fleegle Needle method.
