Notes: Look no further for a summer knit inspiration project! I have been looking for a tank top style with wider straps for awhile. I love this pattern as it fits well and has many sizes so I can adjust easily to suit the weight of cotton picked from my stash! In this case, I used the 8 ply and so went down a size in pattern to adjust for the stitch count being different. I like the purl column detail however, will probably leave it out of the sides as it is hard to keep it open without steaming the garment heavily. I will make another one of these in the next size up to have a play with fit but for now want to learn how the cotton will wear over time. Great pattern to keep for wardrobe basics! Added bonus, instructions for both working flat or in the round !!!
After post update: I did make one change to the pattern I forgot to mention. On the left side of the neckline (if you are looking at the finished piece) I changed the decreases to match and mirror the right side. It ended up being k1, slip k back to left needle, pass second k over first k, sl remaining k back to right needle. If I am being honest, I could have done this on the right arm decreases as well.
