Join Tonja of Pink Plumeria and Furls Crochet for their August 2020 KAL. This month we are making the Surfside Tank in 9 sizes. See below for schedule and details.

For the Surfside Tank I went into my yarn stash and used Mary Maxim Simply Natural which is a blend of Cotton and Bamboo. You can make a Surfside Tank in stripes, solid, or multi-colored and if you have some Furls Whim DK yarn on hand you can use it as a substitute. Now grab your yarn and needles and enjoy this beginner-friendly knit tank pattern. I hope you can close your eyes and hear the waves while you’re relaxing into your project.
