This tank is knit in the round from the bottom up. The front and back are separated at the underarms and worked flat. The straps extend from the front and are attached to the back. You may wish to place markers between each repeat of the Texture pattern to help you stay on track.

This top is intended to be worn with no ease, or a small amount of positive or negative ease (+/- 1-2”).

Regarding yarn requirements, size Medium takes almost exactly two full skeins of yarn. You may wish to purchase an additional skein as insurance.
