Elegant Economy Spring 2011 Runway: Day 4

April 7, 2011 at 11:11 am 1 comment

Hello my fine readers. Today I bring you the final installment of the Elegant Economy Spring 2011 Knitwear Collection.

I proudly introduce Silverlight.

It’s all about the ruffles in this tank. Spring is my favorite time to shop. The fashion of this season is always so pretty and feminine. This tank with its dramatic and frilly collar will look delightful paired with tailored capris or a wispy skirt.

I loved knitting this tank. Even though it’s a pretty small guage, all that stockinette punctuated with occasional increases and decreases for the waist and bust shaping make it a really relaxing garment to knit.

As you can tell, Knit Picks are among my favorite yarn brands. This design is no exception. The sample was knit out of Knit Picks Comfy Sport, and depending on your size only requires 5-9 balls, making it a very reasonably priced project.

Gauge – 23sts x 8 rows/4 inches

Sizes – (x-small, small)( medium, large, x-large)

Finished Garment Size at Bust – (29.25, 33) (36.75, 41.5, 45.25) inches. This top is designed to have negative one to zero inches of ease.  It is worth noting that cotton does not have the memory that wool does and after one or two uses of the garment, the fabric will stretch. This should be taken into consideration when choosing a size.

Required Materials –

  • Knit Picks Comfy Sport – (5, 6,)(7, 8, 9) balls or (625, 750) (875, 1000, 1150) yards. (136 yd/124m to 50g/1.76oz. 75% cotton, 25% acrylic. Colorway: Whisker)
  • #3 or 3.25mm, 29” circular needle.
  • #3 or 3.25mm DPNs (you can use the 29” circular needle and use the magic loop method if you prefer).
  • 5 stitch holders or waste yarn.
  • 6 stitch markers.

$6.00

Well, that brings the Spring 2011 Collection to a close. Stay tuned for the faithful follower giveaway winner announcement, as well as some other surprises.
