Pattern designed by Therese Chynoweth.
Pieces like this tank top are enjoyable to make because when the knitting is done, the tank top is finished, and there are no seams to sew up! The yak/bamboo blend used for this top is a wonderful light weight yarn, perfect for wearing not only in the summer but all year round.The upper lace portion is knit first, then the neck and armhole edgings and shoulder straps are added, then finally the bottom portion is picked up from a provisional cast on and worked to the bottom edge.
