PAT­TERN NOTES

This tank is worked in one piece in a mod­u­lar fash­ion. Back and Front are both worked from the cen­ter out­ward to form an oval. Ad­di­tional rows are worked to partly square off the Oval and also to add A- line shap­ing. Stitches are then worked on top of the Oval to cre­ate the Up­per Body. Front straps are joined to the Up­per Back. The only seams are side seams. When work­ing into a shell, work into the chain space of the shell.
