Notes From the Designer:
•A flirty, fun summer wardrobe piece, this tank can be worn with the buttons open or closed to suit your mood. The length is easily adjustable, so you knit a longer tunic-length top or crop it if you prefer. There are plenty of ways to customize this piece and make it your own!
•Pattern is written for 0-2" of positive ease. If you're looking for more or less ease, consider knitting up or down a size to get the fit you want.
•Gauge was achieved after aggressive blocking, and this is reflected in the stitch counts for each size. Don't be afraid to block for length, as this will draw in the width and help you achieve the specified gauge and measurements.
•In my habit of naming patterns after video game characters, this piece was named after Pascal from Tales of Graces. Pascal is very easy-going and cheerful, and one of my favorite catch phrases of hers is "easy peasy, nice and breezy!" That was my mantra while working on this piece. I wanted to create something easy and enjoyable to knit, but with just enough quirk to catch people's attention and keep the knitter satisfied, hence the garter stitch border that continues up one side. I think Pascal would approve!

You have such a knack for paring colourways with patterns. This one looks so delicate.

What a lovely and versatile pattern! I’m so pleased that is has a full range of sizes available, I can make one for all my favorite friends! The design is simple, yet very classy, and can be easily altered in length. I’ve found all the patterns that Chandi sells are very well written. I think you will be pleased with Pascal.
I love the design of this tank. The buttons on the side add an interesting detail.
I love the design of this garment. I won't be able to cast on until tomorrow night, but I can't wait!
I love the look of this too and the ease of the pattern.
This is such a beautiful and feminine tank top that can be dressed up or down. The attention to detail that the designer put into this piece is what drew me to this design. I'm in love with the fit and its become a closet staple.
Love the softness and feminine feel of this knit. Easy 5o knit and so airy
