Today's free pattern is for a Knit Breezy Tank. I'm using this incredibly soft yarn from Lion Brand called Feels Like Butta, because well, it really does. It's soft and has a really nice drape. This top is made in 2 pieces (front & back) & sewn together at the shoulders and sides.
Please visit my shops to purchase the ad-free, inexpensive pdf file or save it in your library on Ravelry!
