Basic Black Tank Top

Basic Black Tank Top
Pattern: My own, designed just for me
Stitches Used: Seed Stitch Body and Shell Yoke
Yarn: Caron's Simply Soft
Hook: H-8 (5mm)
This basic tank is going to be my favorite when the weather gets warmer, the yarn is soft, the length is "just right" not too short and not too long. The shell neckline is delicate but not too frilly for me. The straps are slightly thick (to hid stray bra straps.) I was tempted to make a little cap sleeve but stayed with a tank design.

I wouldnt' say that is basic, it is very feminine!

The perfect Tank and versatile, it can be worn as a vest. Like the detail stitching for the yoke.

I really like your top, very nice detail around the neck. I would like to know how to get the pattern.

The crochet design will hardly show off in black, but you certainly look lovely in it!

So pretty!

And isn't a pity that black, which is so useful to wear, is so hard to photograph?

I love your tank designs! Is that some shaping I see in the square-necked one? Very Cute. It was great to see you at the grocery store last night...we should get together soon. Like before the snow flies again!
