The Equinox Vestank is a versatile sport-weight design that offers three options: an open vest, a standard tank, and a button front tank, all worked seamlessly from the top down. This pattern was crafted with flexibility in mind, allowing each piece to be worn individually or layered, depending on the season.

The Equinox Vestank is comfortable to wear, with a rounded neckline and torso-skimming fit, and all armholes, edges, and hems finished with a sleek i-cord. The design is written to fall at one’s natural waist, but the torso can be cropped or lengthened to personal preference.

The possibility for customizations are endless, as you have the freedom to use various yarn colors and types, and add embellishments or closures to fit your individual style.

  1. Fill a sink or basin with cold water.
  2. Submerge the fabric in water, gently squeezing out any air bubbles so that the piece can remain under water without being held there.
  3. Soak work for 30 minutes or longer allowing fabric to become completely saturated.
  4. Remove excess moisture by rolling your fabric between clean, dry towels with light pressure.
  5. Lay fabric flat and shape to air dry.
