South Shore Bottom-Up Tank

The South Shore of Massachusetts stretches from Boston to Cape Cod. This is your go-to tank for quiet seaside strolls through the lovely towns south of the city; or for the adventurous, try a day out on the water.

This pullover is worked in one piece from the bottom to the armholes (with waist and hip shaping), then the front and back are worked separately to the shoulders. The armholes and neck edges are ribbed so that they lie flat, and the center front neck edge begins with a single cable cross to anchor the neck.

If you like the style of this pattern but would prefer to work it from the top-down, check out my North Shore Top-Down Tank pattern.
