This is gorgeous!   Grin  I've been looking for something to do with my hand dyed, hand spun, beautiful cotton yarn (that my bf was kind enough to pick up for me when he was on vacation)!  Yay!  It even looks "easy" enough for my first tank try.

Are you looking to start it now?  I have about 2-3 hours left on my current project, and I think this is the next one.

looks nice!

I have saved that in my ever increasing "to knit" folder of patterns......

simple and will make the best of whatever yarn you choose..

I would go for a yarn that has either lots of texture or gorgeouse colours to make the most of the simple style.... but it would look elegant in plain cream/neutrals too!

Why are ppl posting more gorgeous patterns than I can hope to knit???

I love that! I wear a small though, so I think it would be too big for me. any ideas how i could modify the pattern?

thank you for sharing this!  I have some BSA cotton yarn that I've been trying to figure out what to do with.  I'll add this to my list of projects.  but I'm going to have to size it up.  just did some quick calcs, and it looks like at least the number of stitches at CO will make a 30" top -- I'll have to think about how to size that up and do the increases and decreases in the right places...  I also always have trouble calculating for cotton because it stretches so much.

Xbeloved,
I am also a size small....was thinking that a worsted yarn
would make it come out smaller?
Might have to grit my teeth & s-w-a-t-c-h!!

I agree  tajhia, I can't keep up.  To make it worse I'm finding yarns around my house that I can't remember what I intended to do with!  AGH!  Undecided  I love this one and will have to try it!

After closer look at the pattern, I'm wondering what tfbl means.  Huh
The pattern says "Increase around each marker by K tfbl on stitch before and after each marker."

I think I can fumble my way through the rest of the pattern.

Thanks for help in advance!

I think that means knit through front and back loops
