Some of my happiest times were spent in Las Vegas - I love everything about it: the lights, the energy, the intense heat! What could be better than lounging by the pool during the day and going out for a glamorous night on the town at night? In fact, I loved it so much, I chose to elope there 9 years ago!

This tank top is knit seamlessly top down, using Contiguous Method developed by Susie M. This a-line top knits up in a jiffy and there is plenty of summer left to wear one(I don’t mind that heat wave we are in right now!)

The length shown is cropped by you can easily add more length - I provide instructions to do so if you prefer a longer top.

Cotton will give you a crisper top while linen will wash to a drapey elegant fabric. Either way, it will be perfect for the summer.

4(4, 5, 6), (6, 7, 7) skeins of Willet or another summer yarn with good amount of drape. Linen and cotton blends are best!
