Friends, I LOVE free projects. I had this leftover knit in my stash, and as I have been working on stash busting for the last several weeks, I wanted a project that used up a remnant in my stash. I combined this oh-so-comfy knit with the Sorbetto pattern and boom! A new tank top.
I have grey tank that I made out of a jersey pillowcase and I wear it all the time. I wear it around the house on hot days and I wear it to sleep in constantly. I wanted to make some more “cake” for my closet, and I thought it would be perfect to have another comfortable tank to wear.
I altered that pattern slightly in that I made my arm and neckhole bindings the way the Sewaholic Renfrew instructs. This cut down on the sewing time quite a bit, and I’m very happy with how the stripes match up in the front. Yay for free and comfortable projects!
