I am so excited to introduce this tank top to you guys! It’s part of Knitty’s Spring + Summer 2016 collection, and my tank top is the surprise for the issue, which technically came out a little over a month ago. Surprise!
Lake Diamond was inspired by the hot summer days spent chasing a cool breeze. A lacy, cotton tank top is perfect for summer. The open lacework is stylish and will keep you cool, whether you’re spending a day by a lake, the beach, or an amusement park.
The tank is knit with Wool and the Gang’s Shiny Happy Cotton*. The front is knit mostly in stockinette, with eyelets around the collar and hem. The back is constructed separately and has an intricate lace diamond arrangement. The chunky gauge and simple construction mean you can work this up quickly and enjoy the warmer weather sooner!
Of course, I made a video chatting all about my inspiration, some of the details of the construction, and the materials. Check it out!
