Helianthus Tank by Andrea Gaughan

Striped Version

Helianthus is Andrea's take on the ideal everyday bright & fun summery tank top. Instructions are included for either playful stripes or classic solid, but you could use this pattern as a canvas for any color combos your heart desires! Color blocking, random striping, or solid with contrasting edging are a few of the possibilities for making this pattern your own.

This summer tank has a small amount of negative ease; worked in a lightweight, drapey plant-based fiber, this results in a perfect slightly relaxed fit. Neat ribbed edges help to create a polished finished garment.

What you'll get:

  • All the yarn needed to complete your project
  • Please note this yarn kit does not include a printed copy of the pattern, you will need to purchase that separately on Ravelry. 

If you have pre-order items along with in-stock items they will ship together once your pre-order items are available. If you have both pre-order and in-stock items and you prefer to receive the in-stock items first, please your orders separately.

All hand dyed yarn is unique and no two skeins will be exactly alike. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Alternating skeins is the best way to prevent possible pooling, flashing or a sudden shift of color. It's easy! Just work 1-2 row stripes from two balls of yarn (carrying the yarn up the side).

We try hard to capture the essence of each colorway, but please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor. Pic via Andrea Gaughan
