View Full Version : Wanna knit a No-Seam Tank Top ?

01-11-2008, 12:41 AM
This pattern is named 'LACE NIGHTIE' (http://www.interweaveknits.com/freepatterns/pdf/spr_07/Lace_nightie.pdf) (free pattern in pdf format) in the Spring 2007 issue of Interweave Knits, but every sample of it (that I have seen knitted from the pattern) seems to fit more like a camisole or tank top. That's what I had in mind when I made it, and let me tell you,......I'm not at all disappointed. Shying away from seams (I've been a seamstress most of my life......I took up knitting for a CHANGE from sewing !), I thought I'd give it a go.
Take a look at the results..........I just wore it today, wouldn't even take the time to block the curl out of the edges,........and I LOVE IT ! It's a mix between a vest, a camisole, an apron, and a tank ! So much versatility !

I love it!! i agree with the other poster. I like the way it looks over a long tee. though int he summer it would be a quite sexy top.

You guys are all so generous and enthusiastic ! :muah: Thank you for all of the compliments.

I have to admit, I AM considering making it again ! Also on the lookout for more great looking seamless tanks and tees.

nice job, Its lovely on you, Great job

I keep thinking i want to make one of those, then I look at my measurments, and decide my kids are to young, and by the time they are old enough, I may be thin enough to wear one

I love this!!! And you did a fabulous job on it...did you use the yarn called for? Yours looks like a slightly darker green.

It's going on my must knit list.....what does the "deeply scooped back look like? There's not a pic on the original pattern.

No, I used Cascade's PimaTencel.......I think it's a bit heavier than the yarn they used in the original...........theirs looks 'lacier' and lighter in weight than mine, and yet, I got the same gauge as the pattern called for. You can see a shot of the back, here, on my blog (http://thedottydline.blogspot.com/2008/01/preview-of-finished-nightietank-before.html). I had not yet woven in the yarn tails, but it looks the same now. I did have a ribbon in the centerback stitches to pull them together a bit. I bound off those stitches loosely, like I do sock cuffs, and it made it gape open, so when I finished the sweater, I did a little running stitch (hidden) through the top of those stitches and 'snugged' it up a bit.
