Well when I saw it was garter stitch, that was a selling point, but I didn't realize it was circular garter, which means purling every other row - I am fond of Elizabeth Zimmermann, who advocates circular knitting for two reasons - no seams, and NO PURLING. I think she feels that if you want garter, then, knit flat! I also have hand issues which affect my purl stitches. This lovely top may not ever get knitted by me . . . .
I really like this pattern for a tank top. Nice to have for the summer!!
I am almost finished with my Carter tank and cannot wait to have it on me, not needles. It is a wonderful pattern, easy to follow and perfect to knit in a cotton blend. I love that it is bottom up as once I get to the armholes it will be nearly done.
So far so good ! Seems easy enough.
