From designer Julie Hoover specially for Purl Soho, the Sayer tank is a no-fuss knit fit for summertime’s most fun activities: outdoor dinners, vacation ramblings, and hammock catnaps.

With a V-neck on one side and a crewneck on the other, the Sayer gives you free rein to decide which one to wear in front and which in back… And to change your mind! Knit in two pieces from the bottom up, Sayer’s simple stockinette body, with slight A-line shaping and garter edges, is truly a breeze!

Julie knit her tank holding two strands of our fine Cattail Silk for a fabric that is lightweight and cool, natural and totally beautiful. We dipped into two summer-sky shades, Blue Bamboo and Deep Indigo, but the sky’s the limit with eighteen gorgeous colors of Cattail Silk to choose from. You’ll only need a few skeins to whip up your own, just in time for summer!
