PATTERN NOTES
This tank top is knit flat in four pieces and seamed. Stitches are cast on for the length of the garment and each piece is worked sideways. Neck shaping is incorporated into the front pieces. Both back pieces are worked alike. Stitches are picked up along the neck, sides, and hem to work edgings.

This top is intended to have an oversized fit with 10-12” of positive ease depending on how you like your garments to fit. If you are in between sizes, choose a size down for a closer fit or a size up for a looser fit.

The Two-Color Star Stitch Pattern is also charted for your convenience.

Cactus Flower is available as part of the e-book Oasis and as an individual pattern on Ravelry.
