Summer Sunflower Tank


Ta Da!
The summery Sunflower Tank is off the needles and ready to wear;
It didn't take as much time to pick up the stitches
along the armholes and neckline
and knit the I-cord bind off
as
it did to seam this thing! lol
I designed this using the software from The Sweater Wizard
and the measurements from a summer top I love.
It is soft and has a nice drape;
knitting it in an easy K3P1 rib helps the cotton to keep its shape
and not stretch out as the day wears on.
The open side seams keeps it from hugging a tummy too tightly
and gives a bit of swing to the hemline.
It's a win and I will try this pattern again!

STATS:
yarn-TLC Cotton Plus (51% cotton/49%acrylic) worsted weight   3.5 oz    2 skeins
#8 needles
