FD-22 Syncopation

"This is the third design in a series using the swing pattern stitch," enthuses Patterson. "Some swing dancers enjoy adding a little Syncopation to their steps; they think it makes the dance more fun. Having a little lace near the hem of this basic top makes it more fun to knit and wear. This tank top can be worn alone, under a cardigan, over a thin blouse, or however you choose. The top is knit in the round from the bottom up to the armholes, and then is worked back and forth. Pattern includes waist shaping. Can be knit in a DK or worsted weight yarn, anything that would ordinarily knit up at 4.5 to 5 stitches per inch. Fits best with somewhere between 2 and 4 inches of negative ease."
