My Como Top




I do love the finish. 
The yarn is black but almost takes on the purple of my tank t underneath. 

The Details:

Como The Big Easy Book
Debbie Bliss
Tank Top 
p. 48

Quite possibly the easiest garment I've ever knitted in terms of pattern and construction.
The Front is the same as the Back. 

I made the largest size using a chunky weight  of 
yarn in my stash.  I got gauge and got on with it. 

I used a cotton so it is so comfy. 

The shoulder and neck shaping are clever and simple.

I'll make another, but for today I'll just enjoy wearing this one.

I love the tank--great knit! I'm always excited when I get to knit with cotton, Blue Skies Skinny Cotton being my favorite.

Looks great! And kudos to you for conquering the black yarn; it's really hard to see, I think. What color will you do next?
