ABOUT

This beautiful, size inclusive garment features a feminine v-neck front and a fully covered back (Perfect for hiding those pesky bra straps!) It is worked from the top down and is filled with delicate shell stitches that create a gorgeous, eye-catching texture. The pattern offers row by row instructions with color coordinated sizes, notes/tips to make sure it will fit YOUR body, and diagrams so there's no confusion. Plus, since it's made with worsted weight yarn, it's a super quick make!



OPTIONS

Guys, this is a 3-in-1 pattern! Truly. There are instructions for 3 different styles of the Susan Tank. It can be made into a simple, everyday tank top, a flattering peplum style tank top, or even a stunning dress! (Is there such thing as too many options?!)

BEHIND THE NAME

When creating this garment back in 2018, I had temporarily named it the Tybee Tank (because the shell stitches reminded me of the beach and the nearest beach was Tybee. Original. I know.) But when I saw the airy open stitches and feminine style on me, I could only think of my beautiful, strong, and, and might I add, bada** grandma.


A bit about her: Susan is a fellow fiber loving maker! She knows how to crochet, knit, and cross-stitch. But she's also so much more than a maker. She's an explorer, a cancer survivor, a wife, a mom of 3, a grandma to 13, a great-grandma to 22. I could keep going but I think you get the point. She's pretty awesome.





TESTERS

This pattern would not be what it is today if it weren't for these beautiful, talented ladies! I'm so grateful for the time and money they dedicated to this design 🖤 I HIGHLY recommend you check them out on Instagram!
