K2.51  Photo-Tank Top to KnitSummer Sweater 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).
