ABOUT

The Susan Tank is a feminine garment that really shows off the beauty of a woman. It features a flattering v-neckline, a modest, fully-covered back, and delicate texture created from shell stitches. It's worked from the top down and can be made into a traditional tank top, a sassy, peplum style top, or even, a dress!


As usual, 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.

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 click here to check them out and give them some love on Instagram!



As you can see, it's a pretty darn flattering garment on everyone, right?! So what are you waiting for? Grab the pattern today by clicking your preferred shop below.
