Bright Baby Tank Top

Lion Brand® Incredible®


16 sts + 22 rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in St st (k on RS, p on WS). When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

Cast on 40 (42, 44) sts. Work in St st until piece measures 5¼ (6, 6) in. [13.5 (15, 15) cm] from beg, end with a WS row.

Shape Armhole
Dec 1 st each side of next 4 rows -- 32 (34, 36) sts. Work even until armhole measures 3 (3¼, 3½) in. [7.5 (8.5, 9) cm], end with a WS row.

Shape Neck
Next Row (RS):
Work 8 (8, 9) sts, join a 2nd ball of yarn and bind off center 16 (18, 18) sts for neck, work to end. Work even on both sides at the same time until armholes measure 3¾ (4, 4 1/4) in. [9.5 (10, 11) cm]. Bind off 8 (8, 9) sts each side for shoulders.

Work same as Back until armhole measures 2¼ (2½, 2¾) in. [5.5 (6.5, 7) cm], end with a WS row.

Shape Neck
Next Row (RS):
Work 12 (12, 13) sts, join a 2nd ball of yarn and bind off center 8 (10, 10) sts for neck, work to end. Working both sides at the same time, bind off 2 sts at each neck edge. Dec 1 st at each neck edge twice – 8 (8, 9) sts. Work even on both sides until armhole measures 3 3/4 (4, 4¼) in. [9.5 (10, 11) cm]. Bind off 8 (8, 9) sts each side for shoulders.

Bright Baby Tank Top Reviewed by Yvonne on 2012-02-23 ****
I enjoyed the pattern. It was quick and easy. The hardest part was the trim at the end. I could have used a link to instructions on how to do it. I made this primarily to use up some yarn. The black seemd too dark for a baby item, so I threw in the bright colors. I liked the stained glass effect. Luckily, I do have a baby niece to send it to!
