Knit using Kelbourne Woolens stunning 100% cotton yarn, Skipper, Catalina is the quintessential summer tank. It has a classic fit, perfect for pairing with a flowy skirt or pair of cute shorts. Make it season spanning by wearing it year round as a layering piece! You can layer your handknits with this cute tank by wearing it under a cozy cardigan. We bet you can’t knit just one!

Catalina is a re-knit of a pattern originally published in Twist Collective, Haden. The design was updated to create more ease in the body, while maintaining a tight ribbing at the bottom to create a casual blousy look.
