“My all-in-one-piece Jordana Tank Top is named after one of my best friends, Jordana Martin. I wanted to do something where you could knit everything in one piece to limit the finishing. This is the first time I’ve knit something only in one piece! I cast on 146 stitches. This will be the very bottom of the tank. I knit 259 rows in the main color. I decrease 1 stitch every 2 rows for the arm hole.”

“I cast off the neck hole and begin the left shoulder. The knitting machine has to be in the ‘hold’ position, and I have to knit one strap at a time.”

“After the second strap is finished, I cast on the middle again to form the back of the neck hole. Because I am knitting all in one piece, I have now gone over the shoulders and am working my way back down. Yay, halfway!”
