NHK51-6 Sleeveless Ribbed Tank

This smart tank's "Intermediate" rating (by Nashua Handknits itself) is a complete mystery to us. Even if you put in the optional waist shaping, it's still just two pieces, front and back, in a seeded rib with very minimal finishing at the neckline and armholes. Oh, and sloped shoulders (straight back neck). What's so hard? It's just what you want for warmer weather or a layering piece-- clean, uncluttered, showing off any heavy worsted yarn (smooth or more of a novelty) with calm confidence.
