Summer Sweater to Knit

Photo-Tank Top to Knit

This lightweight, one-piece, top-down sweater with 3/4 length sleeves is worked in Stocking stitch with rolled hem, cuffs, and V-neck.
The body is slightly flaired towards the hem which is worked with a 10 stitch left- and right-slant increase panel down each side.
Optional cap shaping at the top of the sleeves is worked with short rows (see photo, page 4), giving the shoulders a more tailored look; without short rows this pattern is easy.
Light as a feather and perfect for packing; wear with chinos or shorts when a light breeze blows.
Chest sizes given in inches and (metric).
XS 30(76), S 34(86.5), M 38(96.5), L 41(104), XL 45(114.5), XXL 49.5(125.5)
