Ribs and lace tank
Pattern: Ribs and lace tank, from Interweave Knits Spring 2007
Yarn: Garnstudio Muskat (5 skeins approx)
Needles: 3.25 / 5 mm
Changes: Not sure how it happened but somehow I got confused with the gauge needed for this pattern and ended up buying a thinner yarn than called for. So I knitted one size up than I normally would and used smaller needles too
Wanted to make it shorter, so I only made 2 repeats of the bottom lace pattern. For the bust I simply used Svetlana’s instructions instead because I liked hers so much better, but I grafted the straps as in the original pattern.
This was the last summer item on my knitting list, and I've moved on to fall items already. Which means finishing the Aprés Surf Hoodie and the Corset Pullover. Both are still knit in cotton like yarns, but have sleeves which means probably perfect for wearing in October around here ...
