Feminine lace upgrades this simple tank from everyday to everyday special. Knit in the round, completely seamlessly, this tank is perfect for summer. Whether hiking to waterfalls or chasing after kiddies, the lightweight organic linen will keep you cool while the sassafras inspired inlaid lace detail and waist shaping flatters your figure.

The Custom Shaping Calculator debuts with this design. The calculator calculates your perfect hips, waist, and bust fit within the given limits of the tank.

The tech edited & test knit intermediate level pattern includes written directions with the lace fully written and fully charted for 12 sizes. The pattern also includes a schematic, custom shaping calculator, and how to video.

Special Notes:
• This pattern is worked seamlessly from the bottom up worked in Stockinette stitch with a lace detail. At the underarms, the garment is split in two parts, back and front, with the lace detail continuing up the front.
• If substituting fiber, reduce or skip the shoulder short rows and work even until desired length. They are included to accommodate the unique drape characteristics of 100% linen.
• See “Inside the Self-Hemming Cast On” on the Knit Eco Chic blog for a video demonstration of the technique.
• The “Custom Shaping Calculator” (also available on the Knit Eco Chic website) ensures you get your perfect fit. The calculator provides custom shaping directions for transitioning between the given sizes.
