Designed by Mona Schmidt for Espace Tricot.

Knit with Habu Textiles Tsumugi Silk (100% silk) our Ombre Tank is perfect for hot summer days. If you can’t wait, layer it with a tee and you’re set for spring! We used the same technique as the Ombre Cowl to achieve the gradation of colours. The fabric is crisp yet soft and supple at the same time and the A-line shaping is very flattering on most body types. Lower body is knit in the round and front and back neckline are kept the same – an easy knit with minimal finishing work.

Note: Yarn is held double throughout.

Colours used in sample: #4, #44, and #47
