Hey all, I'm just trying to get back on the wagon after a bit of a craft hiatus (don't you hate it when life gets too busy to knit??) and wanted to show you this tank I made up.



The yarn is some cotton I had in my stash which didn't look like enough to do anything in just one colour, so I tried putting them together and came up with this.  It was knit on 3.5mm (US 4), with horseshoe lace for the frill and the lace inset, a polka-dot pattern in stranded colourwork and the back is the lace pattern from Wenlan Chia's Tea Rose Halter in the spring issue of IK.



I've got a question though.... I have more of the pink left over. Do you think it will look nicer with a small cap sleeve??

I would do it in the same lace pattern as the inset, I think, but of course other suggestions are welcome!

Excellent job!  I love all the different patterns you combined, they work really well together.  I vote for capped sleeves, if it goes with your style of dress  Wink

Very cute!  I love the color combination and the lace panels!  I think that cap sleeves would be cute, but it looks great without them too.

mmhmm - super cute! A bit of a ruffle would be adorable too! Fantastic pattern, and the colours look great together. All of the different stitch/colour patterns really make for an interesting piece. Smiley

Cute, but I'd actually prefer it without cap sleeves so my vote is to not add them.

beautiful!  did you knit the insert separately and then attach it?

as for sleeves, i'd go with little flutters instead of caps, a la ms. marigold

Yes I think the pink cap would just finish it.
Lovely as it is
