Sandbar Tank

a beach must


$6.00

 

The Sandbar Tank is knit from the bottom up in two pieces. Each piece is knit flat and uses stockinette and mesh lace to create large horizontal stripes. The sides of this tank are left open and an easy crossover method is used at the underarm. Designed with extra length in the back, it is the perfect tank or swimsuit cover up. When it’s just too hot to have wool on your needles, the Sandbar Tank is a fun, light summer knit, just right for a day at the beach.
