The weather is finally warming up so I’m excited to kick off my spring knitting pattern series! This Easy Tank Knitting Pattern is great for beginner knitters. There’s no increasing or decreasing! It’s knit in two pieces and then seamed together at the shoulders. Side tabs are knit separately and then stitched on. This is a relaxed, easy top that can be worn over a tank with jeans.
I used a lightweight alpaca blend yarn for this pattern. It’s great for warmer temperatures and it’s so soft!
