This is my first test for Lily Kate France of the UK. She has super model looks and has been designing cute knitwear since she was a young girl. I love her style!

This is a razorback style tank and is meant to fit with considerable negative ease. So consider using one size smaller than you normally would. It's a very quick project. The back stripes are done with an unusual technique similar to a 3-needle bind off without binding off. Although the tank is knitted with fingering weight yarn, you can use a heavier yarn, including novelty yarn for the back stripes.

For yarn, needle and other info, please see my Ravelry notes here:

You may buy the pattern for £7.00 GBP here:

I also crocheted the belt I'm wearing. Instructions are in my Ravelry notes here:

Instructions for my crocheted headband are in my Ravelry notes here:

The tank is beautiful. Love the stripe detail. You look like a super model yourself. Your knitting is perfection, I can see why designers call on you to test knit.

Nice pattern, I like the armhole edging
it has a very finished look to it. As always,
everything you make and model looks
fantastic!

Wow, gorgeous! I would love this tank, but first I'd have to knit myself a new body, which I could, given time and a good pattern. Unfortunately, that new body would just stretch right out of shape when I put it on and then I still couldn't wear this incredible tank.
