Nominations - Tank tops


Scarlet Women Sleeveless Tank by Jennifer Tallapaneni
Ravelry Page
Pattern Page

This pattern is clingy but not revealing. It allows you to wear your normal bra and there are instructions on how to create strap stays. Designer has optional short rows to allow for a smoother fit. This is a stunning simple tank that can go places. Pattern is priced at $5.50 and has a size range of 32-54 with 2" between each size.


Curves Bamboo Tank Top by Nikki Adams

I love the subtle details of this tank which cause your eye to form curves or enhance those that you have. It can be worn from hot days alone to a tank under a suit jacket or sweater on cooler days. The pattern sells for $6 and has a size range of XS-2X (32-47 inches)



Goddess by Jennifer Hansen

Pattern Page

This pattern my put you off by the stick thin model but it is striking. Look at these examples that I found on Ravelry (all are flickr links for you non-Ravelry members). There are three different body shapes. This is a top down design with short rows to create the drapy front. Price is $7 with a size range of XS - 3X (33.5 - 52 inches)


Ms Marigold by Zephyr Style

Pattern page

We all love the Zephyr style patterns here on the Sexy Knitter's Club. Why not throw in another? This one has the option to be simple or a bit girly. The pattern is $5.50 for a PDF and the size range is XS-2X (32 - 44").

Emerald Seas by Hilary Engebretson
Ravelry Page
Pattern Page

This pattern is from last summer's Knitty. I love the look of it and the versatility you can have from putting different colored ribbons down the front. Size range is XS - 3X (27-51 inches).



Summer Leaves by Robin Dodge
Ravelry page
Pattern page

Had enough of cleavage and midriff-baring fashion? This summer top shows off a bit of skin in the back. And if you still like to show a little cleavage and midriff, it turns out this top is actually reversible, although pretty daring if the leaves are worn in front without a camisole! The construction is essentially like making a cardigan with no sleeves. But instead of the typical closure, knit leaves are sewn over the middle of the back (or front) to close the sweater. This creates daring little open areas in between. Perfect for warm summer days.
This pattern is free and has a size range of XS-2x (30-50 inches)



All Lined up by Robin Dodge
Ravelry page
Pattern page

This is a free pattern with a small bit of colorwork. Do you have one skein of pretty yarn that you want to knit with but don't know what to do with it? Well this pattern allows you to use 50yds of your special yarn. It is an easy to follow pattern with a wide size range XS-2X (30-50 inches) where the designer has sized the squares to be proportional to the body.
