PATTERN DETAILS

Aquae is a modern tank with stripes in two different aquatic tones. The back sports a subtle racerback and the high waist gives rise to an A-line shape that skims fluidly around the hips. Knit from the top down and mostly in one piece, Aquae requires no seaming and works up quickly with simple shaping. An increase chart helps you keep track of shaping when two sets are going on at the same time. Worn layered over a cotton tank or under a light cardigan, Aquae is an effortless piece for summer days and nights.
