From Courtney: 

I have been searching forever for the perfect summer tank pattern, and I finally found the time this winter to sit down and design one. This pattern is a great advanced beginner project, with just enough patterning to keep you on your toes, and some next-level finishing techniques to test your mettle. I love any excuse to use lots of tiny buttons, but the buttonholes could be easily altered if you wanted to use a more standard size and spacing. I’m planning to knit one of these for myself, with about 4” of positive ease, using our yarn Meadow... Once I tackle some of these lingering UFO’s!

Let us know what you're planning on knitting for yourself this summer!
