Put Together is a seamless tank worked from the bottom up.The body is worked in the round to the beginning of the neck shaping, and then the straps are worked flat and grafted together.
Although the finished fabric is reverse stockinette stitch, the tank is worked inside out until the finishing stage to minimize purling.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING YARN SUBSTITUTION:This tank is designed to be knit at a looser gauge than the label says. A worsted weight yarn won’t drape like the original, even if the gauge is right. Sport or light DK weight yarn is recommended. Only 30 to 75 yards of the contrasting color are required (depending on size), so it would be a great use for a small amount of handspun yarn or high-end leftovers!
