With the holidays (sadly) behind us it’s time to start thinking about the new year and warmer months. This past week we received the Spring 2014 issue of Knitscene and we were excited to see Courtney‘s Baskerville Tank featuring Meadow in this amazing issue (we’re already looking to cast-on Julia Farwell-Clay’s Van Doesburg Pullover).
The Baskerville Tank features an interesting construction – worked from the bottom-up, this tank begins with four triangles that are then joined and through clever increasing and decreasing form the body of this tank.
Our favorite part? The back of the tank itself, where the Garter stitch neckline showcases the interesting construction throughout the garment. Subtle yet effective! Courtney used Meadow in Pokeweed, but I’m thinking about Lavender, what do you think?
