I first made this tank for myself in late June years ago. It's debute was the 4th of July parade. Knit from deep red cotton it was a stunner... well, the deep but discreet v-neck did help a little. The pattern sold well for the little knit shop I worked at and was a big hit that summer. Then I forgot about the pattern and time went by. Until... I started receiving requests to make it available as a PDF download! So, my friends, thank you for your patience and thank you for the reminders! And here it is, ready for your 4th of July celebrations this year!

My mother was a big crafter. I cannot remember a moment when we were not creating something in the kitchen, in the sewing room or on the needles. I have continued that tradition with my own son. He thinks it is quite grand to do a "project' with mommy! And I think it is quite grand to have someone to do a "project" with.
