Worked entirely seamlessly from the top down, this tank implements clever construction through the use of provisional cast on and seamstress techniques. The easy cables give you something interesting to do in a sea of stockinette, and the details are in the finishing! The 3-page PDF includes charts and written instructions for the cable panel, and now offers instructions for working both short and long sleeves. This pattern would be easily modified to fit a growing maternity belly! Simply continue working the increases as established in the pattern. If you have any questions about how to do this, you can contact me through the email address given in the pattern!
