The peekaboo cutouts and crisscross straps on the back of the Portico Tank flow into a deep ribbing that runs down the spine. The ribbing is replicated on the sides and around the neck, visually uniting the design for a clever and fun knit. From Knit.Wear Spring/Summer 2018. The body of this tank is worked in the round in one piece to the underarms, then the upper front and back are worked separately back and forth.
