The Purltank is a sleeveless top with a simple repeating structure pattern. It has a body-hugging fit and as a special detail the edges of the arms are made wider in the front, with german short rows. They also act as the straps of the top. The top is knitted top down. First the front and back are worked separately and later both parts are joined together to form the body of the top. Then you pick up stitches for the edges of the arms and finally the collar is worked. The top has a minimalist, straight cut and is suitable as a casual top with jeans, but can also be worn for business in combination with a blazer.

Measurements of the finished knitted top
Bust: 70 (75) 80 (85) 90 (95) 100 cm
Length: 48 (50) 50 (51) 52 (52) 53 cm (measured at the center of the back, without neck).
Before deciding on a size, take measurements of yourself. The tank should be knitted with a negative ease of 5 - 10 cm. The size you need is determined by your chest circumference (or the widest part of your torso). This means that the finished top corresponds to a chest measurement of 75 - 80 (80 - 85) 85 - 90 (90 - 95) 95 - 100 (100 - 105) 105 - 110 cm. If your chest measurement is outside of the size range, it is up to you whether you prefer to wear the top tight or loose. It is recommended not to exceed the negative ease of 10cm.
