Pattern Description:

A mango lassi is a hot weather yogurt based drink from India, refreshing and relaxing. Mango Lassi is a simple knit tank top, relaxing to make and wear, and easy to style. Knit in a drapey fingering weight yarn, the top breathes and makes use of the Outlast (c) to keep you cool and comfortable in the spring and summer heat. An easy twisted stitch textural argyle pattern in the bottom corner of the tank adds interest to the knitting and a cute detail for later. Knitted in one piece to the bottom of the V back detail, Mango Lassi is then knit flat with the V back becoming the two tank top straps. Rather than place all the weight of the top on the two buttons, the straps are seamed to the garment and decorative buttons added afterward. This is a great project to show off your favorite buttons!
