201404 Sheer Illusion Tank

Striking to wear and easy to knit, Sheer Illusion tank embodies the elements of figure flattering design. Knit in the round, from the hem up, a peplum draws the garment away from the hips. Double stranded work highlights simple waist shaping and single stranded work above the bust creates a sheer effect. A simple pattern throughout keeps the knitting interesting, yet effortless and provides textual interest to the finished garment. On the back, the sheer effect begins at the armscye where the knitting goes from in the round to flat. A keyhole and button accentuate the sheer back. A basic rolled edging finishes the neck and arm openings, in this seamless knit design.

Tech edited pattern includes written directions, pattern repeat charts, short row shoulder drop charts, a glossary, pictures, and notes.
