Kristen TenDyke - Not-Yellow Crochet Top-Down Tank

  Not-Yellow Top-Down Tank  
  On a recent Friday, I brought home a ball of Sundance in yellow. I intended to swatch crochet stitches for a dress design that I envisioned. Because I was expecting to receive a last-minute tech-editing project, I didn’t anticipate having time to work up more than a swatch.

Unfortunately (or fortunately?), said project did not arrive which left my weekend open for yarn play. The swatch took me very little time, and once it was completed, I was totally ITCHING to hook up the dress for myself! To satisfy the itch, I got started on the pattern, but I ran into a problem and absolutely HAD to pull out some yarn and a hook to wrap my head around the concept…
