The Harnett Tank is named after Ann Harnett, the first woman to join with the All-American Girl’s Professional Baseball League. Ann also helped design those cute uniforms worn by members of the league and made famous by the movie A League of Their Own, one of my favorite movies. The Harnett Tank is a modern take on those cutesy uniforms. I took those men’s pinstripes and turned them sideways and gave the standard tank racerback straps. Customize the colors to match your favorite team, and don’t hesitate to get out there with a bat yourself.

Notes: Worked in the round from the bottom up with waist shaping and seed stitch detail. Unworked colors can be left attached to the garment and pulled into place when needed throughout striping.
