With flowing cables, a touch of lace, and twisted stitches, the Riviette tank is a joy to knit and to wear. The front and back are symmetrical, so it’s easy to throw this top on and go. The centered cable panel is separated at the neck and creates a lovely neck edging. Wear it as a stand-alone piece during warm-weather months or as a layering piece when there is a chill in the air.
