Description

Cleo is a simple V-neck tank with a few upgrades. It has a classic shape with plenty of ease. An I-cord inspired detail along the front, back pleat, and purl bind-off elevate this otherwise minimal look. Knitted top-down and seamless, when you’re finished knitting, tack the pleat, block, and wear! The cotton/wool mixture of the Dawn yarn makes for a great year-round piece; wear it solo in warmer months and layer over long sleeves once the weather cools.

(A version of Cleo was previously published as Tamalpais in By Hand Serial no. 13.)
