Claire Tank

The Claire Tank was released this week in the spring/summer 2016 issue of knit.wear (formerly knit.purl which was formerly knit.wear) .  This design had been kicking around in my head for the past few years in various iterations, including a textured colorblock mid-panel.  In the end, though, it was best with some side vents and the colorblock without the texture.  I can see it in a muted green with a big pop of fuchsia or tonal with shades of blue.  It’s knitted in Shibui Twig, a blend of flax, silk and wool, that washed really beautifully.


Originally, the design was called Obi, as in sash (not as in Kenobi).  This is the sample on Annabel before I sent it off.

This issue of knit.wear has some great pieces.  I especially love the Bande Pullover by Amy Gunderson and the Lin Sweater by Maria Leigh.
