Last week, as I was sifting through patterns for tanks and tees, as I've done many times before, I couldn't find a pattern that spoke to me for the yarn I held in my hand. There are a ton of lovely tops out there that I fully intend to cast on for eventually, but they all require either more yarn than I have in my discontinued stash, or a different weight yarn all together. Needless to say, I wasn't sold on either of the patterns I posted for the yarn I wanted to work.
Regardless, I started swatching for my summer top, and as I did I decided to improvise and make my own pattern, picking and choosing all of my favorite features to create the perfect tank. I've only just cast on, but I'm sure this is the start of something beautiful.
