Last year I bought this knit to make infinity scarves for Christmas gifts. Those didn’t make the short list, so the knit just lay there until now. The only thing that saved it from the Goodwill box was that the colors suit me very well and match a lot fabrics in my stash.
This fall I turned it into tops. One was a Eureka top with long sleeves, and the other is this new TSW Ann’s Tank. Most people go straight to the cardigan in that pattern, but the tank is a winner, too, and worth trying.
If you browse the gallery on The Sewing Workshop’s website, you’ll see many lovely renditions of the tank. Rumor has it that you can add the sleeves from the cardigan and make a long sleeved top. I’ll be giving that a try at some point.
It was high time for another!
This time I decided to skip the raw edges and sew the side seams all the way to the hem. (I’m not really a raw-edge kind of girl.) I had seen an example of this on the TSW gallery and knew it could work.
To get the corners to play nice, I mitered them and cover-stitched the hem.
I expect to wear this with the half-circle skirt with a yet-to-be-decided topper. When I get that made, I’ll get a photo of the whole outfit. I’m also considering making TSW Ann’s Cardigan in a matching turquoise ponte to get more mileage out of it.
