Big Wave linen tank

Big Wave 2

The quintessential summer knit – quick and satisfying, easy and beautiful to wear!

Pattern:  Big Wave by Heidi Kirrmaier

Yarn:  Quince & Co Kestrel (100% worsted weight linen) – 5 skeins (76 yds/ea) in color Wave

Needles:  US 8s (down one size to get gauge)

Big Wave 3

Size:  M1 (36 1/4″) – this should have given me negative ease, but I wanted a closer fit than that modeled in the pattern photos – perhaps my gauge was a little loose because I don’t think I ended up with negative ease.

A very interesting construction, and a cool way to make tank straps!  This blocked out beautifully and I love the colors of Kestrel.  I think it was a good call not to make it too loose-fitting – it’s a perfect summer tank 🙂
