Started a thread in my group here. Feel free to post questions and progress pictures.

Our adventure is all done! I hope that you enjoyed it as much as I did. The pattern is complete and has been updated with photos and all edits. Hooray for summer knitting! This tank will be a perfect addition to your wardrobe. Wear it under a blazer for work or wear it with jeans for the weekend. The straps are knit first then the tank is knit in the round to the hem. Not much finishing is required.

Join me for a different kind of knitalong! It’ll be part KAL, part test knit and all ADVENTURE.

I’m designing a new tank top for us all to knit together. The sketch is what we’re going for with the finished tank. There’s a scooped neck and a ribbing detail that runs from shoulder to hem. The main body is knit in a simple stockinette with no shaping. This will be your warm weather go to for work and for lounging. This KAL is best for experienced knitters: I’ll be looking for your notes, we may have to tink back (unlikely) and a general understanding of garment knitting would be a plus.

I’ll be conducting the KAL on Instagram on my account @disturbingthefleece. There is no limit to participants. But knitters who purchase the pattern at this introductory price will receive the completed, formatted, gorgeous full version of the pattern when it is complete. Currently, the pattern consists of only the instructions that have been released to this point, no photos yet as I am knitting the sample along with you. To participate without a pattern purchase just follow me on IG. Updates to the pattern will be added each time a new ‘clue’ is released on IG. Sounds exciting, right?!?

Not to worry, if adventure isn’t your thing the finished pattern will still be for sale here at a price of $6.

This is not a secret or a mystery so feel encouraged and invited to post as many photos as you like. Please use the hashtag #adventureknitalong so that others can see your progress and share. You can also tag me.

You can still participate even if you aren’t on IG. When you purchase the pattern you will still receive pattern updates through Ravelry as more instructions are added.

Join me! It’s going to be fun.
