Syringa Tank

Today, Issue 10 of Knit Now hits the newstands, and I can share with you my excitement at having one of my patterns included in the magazine.

Syringa is a girl's A-line tank knit in Rowan Amy Butler Belle Organic DK, a cotton-wool blend yarn with great elasticity. The tank is sized from 2-8 years old, and is worked at a gauge of 21 stitches/36 rows per 4 inches/10 cm. Worked from the bottom up, the hem has a graduated lace pattern before working the body in stockinette (or stocking stitch, if you prefer).
That's a photo of my original swatch, worked in Rowan Calmer which has sadly been discontinued. I hope you enjoy the pattern, and anyone who has any questions should please contact me (email on About Me page).

I'm thrilled to have had the opportunity to work with the staff of Knit Now - the process was smooth and stress-free from beginning to end. The whole issue is packed full of great patterns, so if you have the opportunity to grab a copy, I recommend it!
