Vogue Knitting Mitered Top

BY NORAH GAUGHAN

Featured in Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2009, and shown here knit in elann.com Luna by Libby Grant, this tank top is casually sophisticated with flattering “fit and flare” shaping. The distinct flounce and nipped-in ribbed waist update and add an interesting twist and movement to a basic shape. Originally designed with sequins knit into the neck and armhole edgings, our version is knit without the edging and dresses up or down with ease. Worked upwards, with shaping achieved using a simple double decrease up to the waist, this top will be a quick and relaxing project for the intermediate knitter and is offered in sizes S, M, L, XL, and XXL.
