Staff Project – Wisp Tank
Wisp Tank by Caitlin Hunter
Our lovely staff member Janice knit up this Wisp tank using sweet Georgia flaxen silk and I just have to share it with you.
The Wisp Tank is a beautiful knitting pattern designed by Caitlin Hunter. It is a lightweight and breezy tank top perfect for summer wear or as a layering piece for colder weather.
Wisp is a simple tank worked from the bottom up. The body is worked in the round and then the front and back are split and worked flat. The front and back are shaped the same with a low V neckline. It knit using 2 skeins of Sweet Georgia flaxen silk but can be made in any fiber, just make sure you can get gauge and like the fabric you create! Also a great way to use any spare stash you have lying around
I love this tank as a wardrobe staple it is so quick, easy and versatile!
65% silk / 35% linen
