CAPER TANK

£7.00

Caper is a 4ply weight Colour-work tank top. Caper, meaning ridiculous escapade or adventure calls for colour play and experimentation. Using traditional techniques of knitting the body in the round up to the armholes. Steeks are then created at armpits and the v-neck. Work in the round whilst shaping the armhole and the v-neck. Only two colours are worked at a time per row, and the floats should never be long enough to ruin your tension. Inspired by traditional Fairisle patterns and Peeries (small classic patterns). The colour placement was developed to be fun and easy to personalise. 

The print pattern comes with a download code for a digital verstion as well.
