Inspired by tropical storms, shipwrecks and castaways this sleeveless tank top is designed to be worn layered with 10cm positive ease.
Due to the nature of the stainless steel blend yarn used the finished garment can be scrunched, stretched and manipulated into various shapes.
With yarn held double throughout, Castaway is knit in the round from the bottom up until the armholes. The back and front are then separated and knit flat. Shoulders are seamed.

I'm an Australian who loves playing with yarn. Over the years I've had a go at lots & lots of arts & crafts ..... constantly feeling that need to create something. But no matter what else I do, I always find myself returning to knitting.
Largely self taught I haven't been constrained by "the rules" too much but since discovering the online knitting community new opportunities have opened up to me. I studied Handknit Design for a number of years and have been fortunate to attend workshops with Prudence Mapstone, Jane Thornley, Adrienne Sloane and Teresa Dair.
Due to the new EU VAT laws coming into effect Jan 1, 2015 I will not be selling my designs through Craftsy in the new year. Patterns will be available elsewhere (please contact me for details if you're interested)
