Button-Banded V-Neck Top


This simply beautiful V-neck tank top, from Knitsimple – Spring/Summer 2009 and shown here knit in elann.com Den-M-Nit Pure Indigo Cotton, features flattering A-line shaping with seed stitch at its empire waist, which can be further embellished with buttons, for a touch of whimsy.  Additional seed-stitch patterning at the neckline, armholes, hem, and side vents brings texture to the stockinette body.

Den-M-Nit washes and fades like your favorite pair of blue jeans ans will shrink by 10-15% in length when dried in a clothes dryer. If your plan is to machine wash and dry your garment like a pair of jeans, just make a few adjustments to the length dimensions of your knitting – simply add 10-15% more rows for all length dimensions, and then shrink to fit.
