Our knitting patterns may not be resold or used to create products for any other business
Patterns arrive as PDF downloads via email and also saved to customer accounts. By downloading patterns within 2 weeks of purchase, customers consent to waive their right to the 14-day cooling off period and therefore will not be entitled to a refund.

This simple tank pattern can be made in a single colour, random remnants or alternating stripes.

Make cropped, hip or long to suit your style. Choose a wide boatneck or narrower & fitted. It is a vest that fits true to size so if you’d prefer the slouchy look then we’d recommend sizing up.

Using just knit & purl stitches to create matching panels, you also have the option of adding a ribbed edge.

A gorgeously simple and relatively quick pattern to whip up in front of your favourite box set!

The pattern also includes a Christmas tree for a festive touch (this was originally part of our LADvent calendar 2023)
