Diagonal Triangle Tank

I started this tank top last summer, thinking it would be a great wearable piece, but got into counting trouble and had to let it rest. This tank languished all winter, but I finally picked it up again and finished it. I added a purl row every so often to make a garter/ stockinette stripe, which enhances the plain yarn a lot. I’m pleased with this, even though I made some mistakes and had to redo the shoulders. I knit one sleeve, but didn’t like how it was sitting on my shoulder, so opted to make it sleeveless. I knit this one in the round and so had no seams at the end. Cotton Classic, size 7 needles, 5 1/2 skeins ( around 600 yards) Pattern: Iris Schreier's P90 Diagonal/Triangle Tank
