New Pattern: Wildflower Tank
The Spring 2012 issue of Interweave Knits is now available, so I can share with you some exciting news- my Wildflower Tank is in it!
I actually knit this in the summer of 2011, and made a few more changes in the fall, but I'm really happy with the results. it' s knit in 100% mulberry silk and feels amazing on. At the time, we took some test shots, even though I knew I was going to redo the back later on. It has about 1" positive ease on me, and I recommend a little bit of ease, so that the silk can drape. For those that think a drawstring i-cord is way too much i-cord, i bet you could easily crochet chain a drawstring instead- it would be much faster.
Note: a black strapless bra under this was a bad choice. Wish I had worn the skin coloured one.
I had a hard time imagining summer knitting already until I saw the issue preview- now I'm excited about summer knitting!
