Kristen TenDyke - Ease Tank

  Ease Tank  
  This super-easy top is worked entirely with knit stitches (no purls!), a few decreases, and a few buttonholes. The front and back plackets are worked back and forth in rows, then they are joined and the body is worked in the round to the underarms. The front and back are then worked separately in rows to the shoulders. Buttonholes are added to the front shoulders; buttons are attached to the back shoulders and voilá—a simple beautiful sweater!

Pattern available in Finish-Free Knits. See all designs in this book.
