Dragon scales armor this racerback tank, adding an architectural touch to the otherwise breezy design. Note the sexy scooped neckline, and flared hips that drape airily into points. Knit it up in hemp or bamboo for a flowing summer style. Worked from the bottom up, it features minimal finishing and polished touches like crocheted trim on the neckline and armholes.

I'm Andrea and I make great knitting patterns! I live on Vancouver Island in Canada, where I knit, design, and ride my bike. I love the functionality and beauty of knitting and knit everything from head to toe. My patterns have been published in Brooklyn Tweed Wool People, Twist Collective, Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knitty, and other publications, as well as independently. I'm working on a book called Rugged Knits with Interweave that's scheduled to come out in the spring of 2016. All of my independently-published patterns have been thoroughly tested and edited for clarity and accuracy.
