Valley Yarns Crape Myrtle is a fantastic summer wardrobe building block piece—it’s wonderful on its own or layered over tees, buttondowns, or dresses. This v-neck tank is knit in the Pima cotton and Merino wool blend Granville, giving it a soft and smooth texture, great stitch definition, and a stay-cool feel. Crape Myrtle is knit in the round from hem to underarms with slipped-stitch columns providing sleek focal points at the sides and center front and back. The front and back are completed separately and joined at the shoulder with a three-needle bind-off. An integrated trim along the neckline is extended to meet at the back and joined with Kitchener stitch before being sewn to the back neck. Choose from a trendy cropped length or swingy A-line tunic length options and the beautiful palette of colors with Valley Yarns Granville to create a go-to summer tank.
