DESCRIPTION

SOL is a tank for the summer solstice, designed to celebrate the healing power of creativity and the warmth of the sun on your body. With simple bottom-up construction, this tank features an original asymmetric lace panel inspired by chestnut blossoms. The pattern includes 9 sizes, instructions for cropped or full-length, details for modifying the width of the straps, and both written and charted instructions for the lace panels.

☀️ This pattern was designed for the Ritual Dyes Summer Solstice 2020 offering in a booklet with lots of other goodies! The full booklet is available exclusively in hard copy from Ritual Dyes — this Ravelry listing is for the tank pattern alone. ☀️

 
 
SIZING

All of my garment patterns are #sizeinclusive up to at least a 60” full bust circumference.

To get a sense of how this sweater might fit you, check out the test-knitting round-up on my blog here.

To choose your size, measure the circumference of your torso around the fullest part of your bust and choose the size that fits with 2-8” of ease. This tank is designed to be worn with a wide range of ease — choose what works for the look you want!
