Tank Top Is Finished

Tank Top Is FinishedI’m very pleased to be able to tell you that my Kanata Kerchief Tank Top is finished! Actually, I finished it a couple of days ago. I took photos yesterday morning, planning to do this post then, but that obviously didn’t happen.

Tank Top Is FinishedToday is Thursday April 9th, the first day of week three of our lockdown here and the evening of Good Friday. I went to the supermarket yesterday afternoon once the sun came out. It’s still a bit strange going to do something which has been so routine and having to do it all so differently now. I managed to forget to buy some hot cross buns so spent part of my afternoon today making some instead. They won’t win any prizes but they will do.

Tank Top Is FinishedThis explains the delay in posting, so now back to my top. I had been a bit afraid that it might have the “back end of a bus” effect for me, but I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it on. In the photos you can (hopefully) see how the squares are put together. I had been a bit concerned that the assembly might be a little confusing but it wasn’t. It went together quite easily and surprisingly quickly. The couple of bits I had to pull out and redo were my fault, not the pattern.

This garment has been really relaxing to make and I am very pleased with how it has turned out. I am going to miss having it as something to pick up and do a couple of rows to just chill out.

Now I have to focus on catching up with some other things I am way behind on, like a couple of cross stitch book reviews. I have unearthed a couple of small cross stitch projects I had organised for them, and will hopefully have them, and the reviews, finished soon.

  1. Amazing that I just started to make this top for my sister! I really love your version of this, beautifully done. What type of yarn did you use? I’m using a 4-ply cotton/viscose yarn that seems to have a good drape.
    Hope you are staying well! 🌞👋🏻

    1. What a coincidence! I used a double knit cotton crepe that I must have bought about 25 years ago. As far as I know it is no longer available which is a shame because it is so lovely and soft. Enjoy making your top, and you stay well too. 🙂
