North Shore Top-Down Tank

This pullover is worked from the top down, beginning at the back shoulders. The back is worked to the armholes, then placed on hold while the front is picked up from the back shoulders and worked to the armholes. Then the back and front are joined and the body is worked to the bottom edge, with waist and hip shaping. The armholes and neck edges are ribbed so that they lie flat, and the center front neck edge has a single cable cross at the base to anchor the neck. You may work an optional single crochet edging along the armholes and back neck.
