Worked in a sleek, slinky fiber, as a tank top, this piece is perfect for summer layering when spaghetti straps and bralettes bare too much. Pair the pattern with a cozier, haloed yarn to create a vest that feels fresh with collared shirts, fall dresses and long sleeves.

My formatting for Low Vision pattenrs follows the guidelines laid forth by the Accessible Patterns (Designers and Makers) group here on Ravelry. Low Vision patterns are written in a sans-serif, black font in 24 point text. They do not contain italics. Images and charts have been enlarged as needed. Additionally, my Low Vision patterns contain table of contents linking for ‘skipping around’ within the larger document, and are fully typed out, without parentheses, to make it easier on your screen reader. No charts are included with this pattern. Some of my LV patterns have been tested in more than one screen reader program.
