Here’s a little something I’ve been working up in lettuce knit’s own line of hand-dyed yarns – dyed by me! This one uses a light cotton tape that comes in huge skeins.
This easy and fast-knitting tank is knit entirely in the round with no seams whatsoever! A fun lace edging lends impact to the simple and flattering shape, and frames the neck along front and back edges.

It was a really fun knit, fast, and very satisfying. The upper body (ie. straps) is not really shaped, instead the straps are knit almost straight up to the shoulder, which gives a v-neck and a slight cap sleeve.
