Soleil Stripes Tank

Worked vertically, this sunny tank is worked with yarn carries, so there are few ends to weave in! The partial stripes are jagged in nature, yet planned, to allow for a balanced feel while still feeling whimsical. Imagine how great it will look with dark wash jeans and your favorite pair of sunnies.

Pattern Notes

This pattern is worked vertically from side to side. Beginning at the underarm and shaping to create shoulder, neck, back, and under arm areas.

To reduce the number of yarn ends to weave in, when working Contrasting Color (CC), carry Main Color (MC) along top of stitches and work CC stitches over it. Then switch to MC, dropping CC. When working the next row, when beginning to work stitches over CC stitches, pick up CC yarn and carry it under MC stitches and work to end of row.

To work this tank as seamless, when beginning back shoulders, slip stitch to ends of edges of front shoulders. Then slip stitch the last row to the first row of tank.
