The Double Take Tunisian Tank is a unique, lightweight top that features a modest front and an eye-catching, keyhole back. It's overloaded with texture, has incredible drape, and can be worn with NO undershirt!
Plus, it's made up entirely of the Tunisian Simple Stitch (TSS), making it perfect for beginners! Not to mention, the pattern offers row by row instructions with color coded sizes, as well as, diagrams and example photos so there's no confusion.

BEHIND THE NAME
I'm not sure the name needs explaining, but just in case...
A "double take" is a delayed reaction to something unexpected, immediately after one's first reaction.
After creating this top, I imagined someone doing just that as I walked by!
