We see things they’ll never see
You and I, we’re gonna live forever ♫
OMG, it’s August already!? It is downright scary how quickly the summer has escaped us. As owners of a growing business, time flies by especially fast as everything is always go, go, go and now, now, now. It doesn’t help that here in Toronto, it feels like summer began not so long ago and we’re winter bound once again (haven’t you heard, ‘winter has come’?).
Anna & I have been working hard to add new and exciting products to our shop, with one of them being Wool and the Gang’s aptly named Shiny Happy Cotton. Let’s just say ‘obsessed’ doesn’t begin to cover how we feel about it. The cotton is soft to the touch, durable, and comes in so many colours that variety is never an issue. There are an endless number of projects you can make with it, with one being…
The Live Forever Tank.
I guess you can say the pattern’s inspired by what I envision myself wearing on a perfect summer day. I can’t imagine anything better than a lazy day spent under the sun with a generous heap of gelato on one hand and a ginormous iced cappuccino on the other.
The Live Forever Tank is an intermediate level knit pattern that features a simple side lace pattern that stops short of your waist, accentuating your curves. The top also comes in two versions: high low or symmetrical. Yes, we love it so much we couldn’t resist making two styles! Knit one in Cinder Black or True Blood Red for a sexy and bold vibe, or choose a more neutral colour like Nude Pink for a flirty, feminine look. The options are aplenty 😉
- High low tank: 4 (4, 4, 5) balls of Shiny Happy Cotton in Hot Pink
- Symmetrical tank: 3 (4, 4, 5) balls of Shiny Happy Cotton in Cinder Black

- Stitch markers
- Tapestry needle
- Optional: 5mm crochet hook
