Scoop Neck Tank



Pattern Notes
Scoop Neck Tank from Vogue Knitting Knit Simple Magazine Spring/Summer 2007

Yarn: Rowan Calmer in #482
Needles: US 8

I was looking for a simple tank top in my closet on one of the rare warm days early his year and somehow I couldn't find one. Also I really wanted to divert myself from my more difficult projects, so I cast-on for this much easier project. This was a very last-minute, not at all planned, Friday night at 11pm-cast-on-after-digging- through-my-stash type of project. Unfortunately, it didn't turn out nearly as well as I had hoped.

I had this Calmer in my stash (because we all know I am "knitting from my stash"...yeah, that's working out well). The only major modifications that I made was lengthening it by about 3" and I knit in the round up to the arm holes (instead of on straights). I had some major problems with this pattern, most of which were my fault, and all of which I can't believe I did given the simplicity of this pattern. I guess I figured that instead of paying attention just a little (unlike the lace project which requires my full attention), I would not pay any attention at all! Can anyone see my mistakes? A couple of them are pretty obvious...
