Caribbean Waves Tank Top – Knitting Pattern


A pop of color and a little flair for under your suit jacket or over a pair of shorts, you decide when and where in this easy to make tank top designed to take what ever life throws at you.  It’s 100% washable and the colors stay true wash after wash in Bamboo Pop!


Featuring the soft hand of bamboo and the gentle hug of one cotton, Universal Bamboo Pop will make your project come to life.  Available in a wide range of solid, variegated  and gently spreckled colors, this yarn is a keeper.  Need a slightly warmer top? Try Universal Wool Pop.

Designed to transition from desk to dock this top is a bit longer to remain comfortable when seated.

This top knits up quickly in the round with a little bit of visual interest at the hem where it’s knit flat to create a wave-like ruffle, joined in the round to create a field of eyelet as it travels up the bodice to finish flat and bind off. Add a simple edge to complete the top and you’re ready for a day at the office or out on the water.
