The Heya tank may not end up being the most unique item in your wardrobe, but sometimes simple is best since you can wear it with just about anything! Rustic silk and linen fingering weight yarn knit at a slightly looser gauge produces a fabric that is comfortable to wear even on very warm summer days. Also, since it is knit in two pieces in all over stockinette stitch, it’s easy, and portable and is a great knitting project to take with you while travelling.
This tank is knit in two pieces from the bottom up and then seamed at sides and shoulders. All edges are “unfinished”, meaning there are no edging stitches such as rib or garter stitch that are normally used to help stockinette stitch lay flat. With blocking, the Handmaiden Flyss yarn will lay flat. If substituting with another yarn of a different fibre content, be sure to block your swatch and make sure it holds a nice flat horizontal edge when dry. If not, perhaps try working a couple rows of garter stitch (knit every row) after the cast on.
