Does anyone have a very basic/simple tank top pattern
Iíve been searching online for a free pattern for a for my body type and Iím just not sure. I am a 42DD and 36/38inch Ok 40inch if I donít want the muffin top waist and most of these tank tops are for shapely and smaller frames. I don't want to knit something and then have it look like a bag filled with sausages. I you get what I mean.



I think what I am looking for is something in stockinette st. No thin straps, no lace, no ribbed hems ,no cleavage shots,no form fitting .
Also, I just read that Cotton yarn will stretch the longer you have it on. I thought cotton would be the best yarn to use for a summer top? I wanted to try and knit some tank tops up for work, thatís why I need something very simple and machine washable and dryer safe and , something that will not be hot.
I work in a Elementary school and summer cleaning is very hot and sweaty work. There is no AC.
