This lacy tank top is knitted from the bottom up in the round. The shoulders are bound off with 3-ndl BO for a seamless construction. It is a fast and fun project. The pattern includes written round by round instructions for the Vertical Drop Stitch Pattern so an intermediate knitter can work the tank without prior experience with drop stitch knitting.
From the armholes up the tank is worked in rows.
When you’ve bound off the shoulders you have finished the top. There are no edgings that have to be worked afterwards as the armholes as well as the neckline are finished along the way with decreases and sloped bind off at the neckline. All the steps are described in the pattern row by row.

At the moment the pattern comes in four sizes:

Women’s Xsmall
Women’s Small
Women’s Medium
Women’s Large.

Difficult with the gauge measuring here - the lace as well as the 2 x 2 rib have considerable stretch, however, because the top is worked in 100% Linen yarn it will likely become a little wider than one anticipates when it is worn. Linen like cotton and other plant fiber knits do not have as much bounce back as wool. Have this in mind as you swatch and measure and decide on a size.

The BC Garn Lino is 100% Linen - it is a relatively rustic yarn with small variation in the thickness of the yarn.

You will need:
4 skeins for size XS and Small
5 skeins for size Medium and Large
