I am calling this tank "Liberal Bias". Overall I am pleased with how it came out, but there are a few things I would do differently if I did this again. First I would make the whole thing longer, it is a smidge short. I thought the cotton would grow slightly more than it actually did. And secondly I would put a purl ridge in for the rolled edge. But overall I think this came out pretty close to what I had in my mind.

This is the sketch I started with:

This is gorgeous! It's so flattering Smiley I think I'm going to have to pick up some of that shine sport for myself. Are you planning on writing up/selling the pattern?

Like the political slant. LOVE the bias knit shell. In blue state blue, no less.

Will there be a pattern? I hope!

Yes, I think we ALL want the pattern Smiley
That looks really fun to make for something with such a "simplistic" design, and it looks great on too Cheesy
