Thomas the Tank Top

The name had to be done…! ;p

This knit kit knits up a lovely box shaped tank top. Made in the round (we know that’s a favourite of yours!), it is finished with a pick up and knit neckline and sleeve ribs. You have the option of three lengths, although you can go even longer if you’d prefer.

The tank top is suitable for intermediate knitters and covers sizes 8-28. It is designed to be quite close fitting so size up if you’d like it looser.

Choose two colours for a lovely pop around the neckline and the sleeve ribs – or just opt for one main colour throughout. The pattern listing also shows how you can create the tank top with random stripes too, so you can use up your super chunky scraps. Whether you buy the full kit, or the downloadable pattern, it will talk you through how to create a plain, basic striped version, or a random striped version.

Wear it on its own, or style it over a summer dress or blouse. It looks incredible with jeans or shorts and the colour options are limitless!

If you need Large or X Large to be longer than 50cm long then please add an extra hank to your kit.
