Woven Rib Tank Top

The Woven Rib Tank Top is done and I am very happy with it.

I ended up going with a V-neck after experimenting a bit. A sweetheart neckline, which is what I originally planned, would need a shallower V, and that would not have worked with this particular stitch pattern.

Cool... the camera even managed to pick up a bit of the sheen from the yarn.

The tank looks great. It just amazes me that you design sweaters. Seriously... wow!

Designing is not that hard Liesel. It takes experience, (the trial and error variety), not expertise. It also doesn't hurt to have a willingness to rip and repeat endlessly, and a bit of fearlessness.

For instance, I learned this time that decreasing one stitch every-other-row is too steep an angle for a sweetheart neckline. Something like a decrease of one stitch every row might work better.

Wow, I am impressed! Your tank turned out gorgeous! Love the neckline, stitch pattern, and colour... beautiful! I've been reading your blog for a few weeks now and I'm lovin' it :)

That sweater is excellent!

I shall make a dishcloth in its honour. *g*
