Solo Waistcoat Knitting Kit
The Solo Tank Top is a very striking garment; wear it over shirts and pencil skirts for the ultimate office look, or with a polo neck and flares for everyday. Solo can be worn in combination with Hope Wrist Warmers but looks great on its own. The pattern offers enough challenge to keep experienced knitters interested but is still fairly straight forward to make.
