Here's the patten.

And here's the thread about a gauge question for this tank which inspired a few of us to knit this super cute tank along with Rachelo.
https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=16740890.0

Anybody else want to join us? Rachelo is doing some tricky math to get gauge, and I'm going to be subbing the yarn so let's see how this experiment goes. Come on you know you want to. Everyone needs a cute cotton tank for the summer!

Here's what I plan to try to use for mine. It's brown sheep cotton fleece. (The yarn is on a giant pile of denim for another project) I may not get gauge either since I'm subbing the yarn. I may need to borrow your math inclined boyfriend!

I love that color.
As soon as I can get the pictures off the camera, I'll post my yarn.  It's a hand-dyed, hand-spun cotton, variegated yarn with blue, orange, and pink in it.

I'm still only about 10 rows past the eyelets...  I'm using the rec yarn because it's SO soft and cozy.  If it turns out well I may make another with a yarn that's all one thickness though.

That's right about where I am too!   Cheesy  I hope to get to the darting today (which is where I'm going to get worried, I think).  It seems to be going fairly quickly though (and I'm taking a lot of breaks).

hmmm...I've been thinking of this project. I just started a "Dream Swatch" last night, but hey, who doesn't have a few projects going at once....

I must peruse the yarn stash when I get home from work...

Good - I'll be motivated to "keep up" and maybe get it done in a reasonable amount of time!   Cheesy
