Strolling down board walks or picnicking in the grass, Summer Hideaway Tank lets the breeze flow through while keeping you covered. Express your style with your favorite of two fun hemlines or knit one of each in different colors to be wardrobe ready whatever summer opportunities float your way. Designed with as little finishing as possible, the unique arm shaping works the edging contiguously with the rest of the design.

• Construct It: worked bottom up in the round, seamlessly. The contiguous edging along the arm openings reduces the finishing required for the Summer Hideaway Tank. Follow pattern until end of Neck Edging. Then follow Tank Version. At the end of Tank Version, jump to Finishing. Summer Hideaway Tank may also be worn as a vest!
• Swoop It: Summer Hideaway features a swooping hemline. This is optional. If you skip the Short Rows section in hem, the design will be straight across the bottom as seen in the tank sample.
• Swatch It: work a generously sized swatch, wash, and block. The overall weight of the sweater affects the final blocked gauge. For reference, designer’s unblocked gauge was 23 sts and 25 rnds over 4”/ 10cm in pattern stitch using larger needles.
