Big Cook's Tank Top

Big Cook's Tank Top

Knitted for a fancy dress party, as Big Cook from the BBC Cbeebies series. Let down by using cheapo-cheapo acrylic for the very bright stripes, which knits, washes, irons and wears horribly compared to the cherry red wool mix and the rust Jaeger Matchmaker DK. A lesson learnt!

The basic pattern was Sirdar 1709, with wider shoulders. The first row of each 8-row stripe was knit 1 -slip 1 pwise.
