Whiteowlcrochetco. Lobelia Tank

The Lobelia tank is named after a small and plentiful blue flower, similar in texture to the stripes of seed stitch in the pattern. You will work this tank from the bottom up, starting with a 1x1 rib tubular cast on (although a traditional cast on is acceptable as well). You’ll then work in rounds over the body and flat in rows over the bust. The straps are made with knit i-cord and attached using a three-needle bind off.

Instructions for the bust are broken out for each size for clarity and stitch counts are available for each row for better progress keeping. Modifications are easily made to the length of the tank and the straps, although this will modify the required yardage.


Includes instructions for how to add a project to Ravelry.
