The neighbour's grass

Always greener?
I always loved coachella. It was one of the first thing I favourited years ago when I joined Ravelry. I love knitting, I love racerback. It took me a while to find the perfect yarn (which at the end came from the second hand shop).
What I didn't think that tank tops and knitting... kind of contradicting. I mean when it is hot enough to wear a tank it is hot to sweat in anything thicker than sheer linen.

It looks fun though, but the plunging neckline makes you think all kinds of solutions. How would this look like with a shawl pin for example?

It would also helped if I would read the pattern through very carefully...and not to start a top down item at the waistline. Thanks to the shcematics I could finish the thing withouth frogging.
And I love the backline. I am not a great fan of the rolled edge so used garter edge at the waist and around the armholes.

The yarn is Lana Grossa Elastico Print. Lovely, lovely yarn. I wish I had more of it, like enough for a sweater.I used 3mm addi circulars.
