My Isabella inspired Candy Floss Tank is done and got worn this weekend. I loved knitting with the cotton yarn and even though the back took forever, the front worked up pretty quick, thanks to the neckline which kept my interest peaked!
Here are the deets…
The pattern was heavily inspired by Isabella from knitty.com, knit with Phildar Licorne cotton yarn and 3.5 mm needles.
Other details: Picot hem, waist shaping, short row shoulder shaping and single crochet edging around the armhole to stop the fabric from curling.
Things I would do different: Omit the striping of the colors and the widest part of my anatomy, aka, my hips (but hey I was trying to stash-bust and keep the colors in the pink family), make the waist a little longer before begining the increases, NOT block the daylights out of it because cotton yarn BLOOMS! But the yarn has retained it’s shine and is so cool against the skin. I can take any summer heat wave with this baby!
Next on my queue, Sizzle!! Bring it on, Dubai Summer!!
