Summer knitting in cotton! Beginning at the back neck, the tank is knit top down. This is a great style for perfecting brioche as it is knit partially flat and partially in the round. The neck and shoulders are narrow and the underarm is a bit dropped for a breezy summer fit. All trims are knit on for minimal finishing. All DEGEN garments are designed to be adapted so I recommend to block and fit as you go and think about what bottoms / dresses you might want to style with so you  can achieve the perfect length.


Fit notes: This tank is a breezy piece warn alone or over tighter under garments. It is trim and fitted at the neck with narrow shoulders and low armholes for maximum airflow.  The sizes are XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL) Please see the fit chart below.
