Asteria Tank - Knitting Pattern


** This listing is for a pdf download only**

The Asteria Tank is a fun and relaxing knit, worked from the bottom up and will keep you breezy all throughout the summer! You can make yours, as I have, in a light DK weight cotton for a nice summer piece, or in any DK wool blend of choice for a nice fall layering piece!

Finished Measurements

1 (2, 3, 4, 5) (6, 7, 8, 9)

Actual bust circumference of finished garment:

32 (34.5, 37, 40, 45) (48, 53, 56, 61) inches
81 (88, 94, 101.5, 114) (122, 134.5, 142, 155) cm

To find the perfect fit for your garment, measure the circumference of your bust and add 2-4” to your measurement. If you are between sizes, I suggest to size down.

For a full length version of this pattern I recommend adding a total of 4 inches to the body. To add calculate yardage for the amount of length you would like to reach, add 10 (12, 12, 15, 16) (18, 20, 22, 23) yards per inch.

First is, that such powerlifters either don’t have 1RMs to base the on or the 1RMs they have are not correct. The latter reason occurs due to a mix of multiple factors.
