Cast-on size medium using 3.75mm and 4mm needles.

I wanted my tank to have good drape and positive ease. My yarn + needle combination didn’t quite get me the recommended gauge but the fabric they made was perfect. However I completely overestimated the amount of ease I needed and 8 inches in I realized the garment was going to be way too big to be flattering. Decided to start over!⁠

Bound off and am super happy with the fit this time around! I made the straps a little longer than suggested in the pattern and think I’ll have to go back and fix because it makes the neckline too deep to wear with any bra.

Over a year later and I’ve finally gotten around to fixing the long straps! Excited to wear this. Loved every minute of this project, it was such a dream to knit.


  • Made the body 2.75” longer for a less cropped version
  • Made straps 2.25” long and had to come back and shorten to original specs in pattern!
