Caribbean Waves Tank Top
This knitting kit includes all the yarns needed to knit this Caribbean Waves Tank Top that was designed by Rosann Fleischauer at First Byte Designs.
A pop of color and a little flair for under your suit jacket or with a pair of shorts.
This easy-to-knit tank top is designed to combine with any outfit. It’s 100% washable and the colors stay true wash after wash in Bamboo Pop!
Featuring the soft hand of bamboo and the gentle hug of cotton, Bamboo Pop will make your project come to life. Available in a wide range of solid, variegated colors. Use the drop-down menu to choose your favorite color.
Designed to transition from desk to dock this top is a bit longer to remain comfortable when seated.
Knits up quickly in the round with a little bit of visual interest at the hem where it’s knit flat to create a wave-like ruffle, joined in the round to create a field of eyelet as it travels up the bodice to finish flat, and bind off.
Add a simple edge to complete the top and you’re ready for a day at the office or enjoying a summer day.
