Just because it's warm outside it doesn't mean you have to stop knitting! Knit yourself a fun chevron tank top to wear to the beach this summer!
The Rehoboth Beach tank top (that's a beach in Delaware, my illustrious current state of residence) is a quick, easy knit. There is no waist shaping, so you start at the bottom and go round and round, right up to the armholes. Then you'll divide for the front and back and work flat. The shoulders are joined with a three-needle bind off, then you knit a narrow edge around the armholes and neck. Easy! No seams!
The tank top is meant to be worn with either zero ease or a few inches of negative ease. Shown in size 33" with about .3 inches of negative ease and a hurricane with a pretty paper straw.
