The May Tank is worked by making front and back separately, commencing in the centre and working out in the round until desired size is reached. You then work back and forth on instructed sides to create the neck and arm shaping. Front and back are seamed using a crochet seaming method with borders added after seaming. The May Tank can be worn alone or layered over a t-shirt or turtleneck.
