Whitaker Tank Knitting Pattern Download


My Quince obsession continues. Kestrel's beautiful texture and the open design of the sides make the Whitaker Tank a unique and versatile piece that can be used as layer to achieve different looks. The Whitaker Tank is the perfect layering piece to take you from Spring to Fall. My goal in writing patterns is to bring on-trend and current design elements into our knitting realm. If I would wear it, I will write it.

This is knit as separate front and back pieces, seamed at the shoulders and then blocked. The straps are knit separately and applied after blocking. This tank has a dropped armhole so that it can be layered over various tops. This top was designed for a petite to average height person. It may appear slightly cropped in the photos of me wearing it and that is due to my height (5'9").
