Cozy Tank Top

7 Aug

Using 4 balls of Rowan RYC Cashsoft DK, I knit the Cozy Tank Top  by Lucinda Guy from And So To Bed… in size 3T. The patterns called for 2 balls for the skirt of the top and 1 for the upper half of the top.  With just a few rows left to knit, I ran out of the lighter green and had to go and get another ball of yarn to finish the top.

The pattern was extremely easy and fast.  I love the way the bottom part of the top looks like it has a sort of Swiss dot pattern.

I decided not to add the crocheted trim to the bottom of the sweater.  I thought it would take away from the subtle twists at the bottom of the sweater.

Now, I am working on making a teddy bear for Jonah’s first birthday.

    Your cozy tank top turned out beautifully. I remember I knit one for my daugther in pink and brown and loved her wearing it. I never put the crochet edging on either but that was only because I didnt know how to crochet. I look forward to seeing your next project.
