    Don’t know what to do with all your fingering weight yarn leftovers? Knit a stripey tank top! The front is knit sideways with vertical garter stitch stripes. Then the back is worked from the neck down to the bottom while being attached to the front. I-cord borders decorate the edges.

    The large voluminous shape is meant to have an oversized fit so you can move easily and breezily. Try cotton, silk, and linen yarns for warmer climates or layer the garment over t-shirts and long sleeves for a variety of styles.
