Knit a Summer Tank Top Pattern - Free Knitting Patterns

The free knitted tank top pattern from Berroco specifies yarn that Berroco no longer carries but
they continue to support knitters in copying the pattern for their library and using it.
The web site calls it a lingerie pattern but it honestly looks more like a summer top to knit.


The sizes are for small, medium and large.
