This simple yet sophisticated tank top graces the cover of Knitscene Magazine Summer 2017. Elegant details adorn all of the hemlines and add interest while knitting. Stripes flow horizontally across the front and back of this piece while vertical stripes accentuate the sides. The front and back of this top are worked separately back and forth in reverse colors. Stitches are picked up along the sides of the front and back for the ribbed side panels and straps.
Magazine Kit includes Knitscene Summer 2017 (pattern inside) and selected yarn.
