It’s all about the ruffles in this tank. Spring is my favorite time to shop. The fashion of this season is always so pretty and feminine. This tank with its dramatic and frilly collar will look delightful paired with tailored capris or a wispy skirt.
I loved knitting this tank. Even though it’s a pretty small gauge, all that stockinette punctuated with occasional increases and decreases for the waist and bust shaping make it a really relaxing garment to knit.
As you can tell, Knit Picks is among my favorite yarn brands. This design is no exception. The sample was knit out of Knit Picks Comfy Sport, and depending on your size only requires 5-9 balls, making it a very reasonably priced project.
Gauge – 23 sts x 32 rows/4 inches
Sizes – (x-small, small)( medium, large, x-large)
Finished Garment Size at Bust – (29.25, 33) (36.75, 41.5, 45.25) inches. This top is designed to have negative one to zero inches of ease. It is worth noting that cotton does not have the memory that wool does and after one or two uses of the garment, the fabric will stretch. This should be taken into consideration when choosing a size.
