PATTERN NOTES This top is knit from the bottom up in the round. The front and back hem are knit separately first, then are joined together and the body is knit in the round. The front and back are separated at the underarm and worked flat. Stitches for the armhole edging are picked up and knit in the round. The neckband is picked up and knit in the round for a few rounds, then is worked flat to create the polo collar.
When changing colors, do not break color A at color changes. Instead, carry the yarn up loosely along the inside or side of work.
The Mainsail Tank is available as part of e-book Seaside Supreme, and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
