Cable Tank Top

This top is worked in-the-round from the bottom to the armholes, with slight shaping at the center front and back, then the front and back are worked separately to the shoulders. The front and back are worked exactly the same. The center two cables twist over each other at the base of the neck, then run up alongside the neck to the shoulder straps.

The 4-row cable pattern is presented in written format.
