Hi! I'm Sarah Wilson, also known as the Sexy Knitter. I started crafting at a very young age and have tried a little bit of almost everything - sewing, quilting, cross-stitch, needlepoint, embroidery, crewel, plastic canvas, weaving, knitting, crochet, beading, jewelry making...the list goes on. These days, I am a full-time knitwear designer whose work has been seen in publications like Interweave Knits, Knitty.com, Knitscene Magazine, The Knitter, Your Knitting Life, and more! You can find me online at sexyknitter.com, or on social networking sites (like Twitter, Ravelry, and Etsy) as TheSexyKnitter.View all patterns by designer (81) »
Worked entirely seamlessly from the top down, this tank implements clever construction through the use of provisional cast on and seamstress techniques. The easy cables give you something interesting to do in a sea of stockinette, and the details are in the finishing! The 3-page PDF includes charts and written instructions for the cable panel, and now offers instructions for working both short and long sleeves.
This pattern would be easily modified to fit a growing maternity belly! Simply continue working the increases as established in the pattern. If you have any questions about how to do this, you can contact me through the email address given in the pattern!
22 sts/30 rows = 4in/10cm in stockinette stitch
Note about gauge: Yarn used for sample was knit at a gauge of 22 sts/30 rows to measure 4in/10cm. Blocked, the piece stretched to a gauge of 20 sts/32 rows to measure 4in/10cm. If you are substituting yarn, make sure that your finished swatch measures to appropriate gauge when washed and blocked.
