Simple stockinette stitch in cool cotton gets a twist on plain when you tie the back straps into a reef knot, and an unusual picot hem finishes the piece in style. Worked from the bottom up in one seamless piece, this A-line shape and plunging V-neck are flattering on a wide range of body types! Get creative with the knot and make your tank unique.
