Pattern: Exotic Tank (free!)
Yarn: Phildar Exotic, 2 skeins
Needles: US 11 straight needles
Notions: two buttons
Recipient: The Very Charming Miss Lorin
Notes: Doesn't this just make you long for summer? I finished this project, er, probably last June. My sis sent me a photo of my charming now-5-year-old niece, but I was waiting until I got a scanner, then finally just gave up and photographed the photograph with my digital (hence, the weird photo quality). ANYHOO. This free pattern from Kerrie's place was tons o' fun! Not only do I owe Kerrie for the fun pattern, and my sister for the photo, I owe Nipper from Nipperknits for the yarn trade that made the tank possible.
Speaking of the yarn, it's been discontinued. But any flat ribbon yarn of similar gauge should work, like Crystal Palace Deco Ribbon, for one.
AND speaking of Nipper, she made a gorgeous grown-up version of this pattern.Posted by jess at February 12, 2005 4:49 PM
