Calvet is a cute little tank top, perfect for the summer weather! Knit from the top down flat to the underarms, the body is then worked in the round. The shoulder straps are done in the end with the underarm trims. Pattern comes with instructions to knit Calvet straight or A-line, and with an even or asymetrical hem. Your choice!
The yarn requirements have been calculated for the A-line, asymetrical tank top. If you choose to knit the other option, you will need a little less of the main colour.
You will need:
Main Colour (MC): approx 274 (290, 312, 328, 355, 375, 396) metres or 300 (317, 341, 359, 388, 410, 433) yards of Worsted weight yarn (shown here in Quince and Co Kestrel, colorway Urchin);
Contrasting Colour (CC): approx 110 (117, 126, 135, 144, 153, 165) metres or 120 (128, 138, 148, 157, 167, 180) yards of Worsted weight yarn (shown here in Quince and Co Kestrel, colorway Ash)
Two 5 mm/US 8 circular needle (one of them should be 16” length for the shoulder straps and armhole trim or use DPNs)
Tapestry needle, stitch markers, waste yarn or stitch holders
XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL) = 30 (32, 35, 37, 40, 43, 46) inches or 76 (81, 89, 94, 102, 109, 117) cm finished circumference at the chest.
I suggest to choose a size with no ease at the bust (or even a little negative ease if intended to be worn as a tank top). If you intend to wear it as a layering piece over a shirt choose a size with approximately 1” or 2.5 cm of ease.
Model is shown wearing a size M, with no ease at the bust, an A-Line body and asymetrical hem.
Gauge: 16 sts and 26 rows = 4” or 10 cm in St st on 5 mm/US 8 needle (after blocking)
