Mid-Atlantic Tank


A delicate tank with waterfall neck.  Simple and elegant tank that could be dressed up or down.  Works wonderfully as a layering piece for a business suit or for a casual look with jeans or shorts.

Bottom up design that is worked in round until armholes are reached.  To form the armhole opening, the front and back are worked separately and then joined at shoulder via 3 needle bind off.  The waterfall neck shaping will start a few inches below the armhole line and continued to be shaped until front is done. Garter rounds are worked on all edges of the tank to finish the top.
