I wore a pretty bralette for the open back. A tank top would work great, too. The front is solid with the cute ribbing at the bottom. If you didn’t want the open back, you could make two front panels instead. But don’t worry about making the deep V for the back, there’s a photo tutorial included in this pattern to guide you through it.

I used my absolute favorite cotton from We Are Knitters. It is the lightest and most comfortable cotton I’ve ever used. But you could easily substitute a different cotton yarn. I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby is a good cotton and it has an especially great price.
