I made this tube quite some times ago and I havent joined craftster that time. Sam saw this tube and want me to knit her one, so I did. I used the same yarn, which is one of my favourite yarn, the patons classic merino wool in natural marl. I think I only used like 1 and 1/2 balls of yarn.

This tube is knitted in round, using different needle size to give the shaping effects. Very easy and fast knit. I combine a simple lace and cable pattern, also rib pattern in it. I attach a maroon ribbon as a final touch to it and actually you can wear this top upside down. ;D
Thanks for looking!

Oh wow! It's so extremely sexy! And the stereotype of knitting-is-for-old-ladies? I think this cable tank has banished that stereotype for ever! I love the fit, I love the pattern, I love the ribbon, I love everything about it!!! Great job :happydance:

I agree with dreamsherl that a matching shrug would be scrumptious with this tube. Oh my goodness!!!! I WISH I had the body to wear this sexy little number. It is Gorgeous with a capital G!:woohoo:
