Sylvia (our shipping manager) and I were recently talking about the Vicissitude Tank & Cowl. We'd both seen the pattern in passing on Ravelry, and she was certain that the pattern made one garment that was both a tank and cowl, and I was equally certain that the pattern made two pieces because the cowl did not look like it was a top.
Clearly, I was wrong - Vicissitude is one garment. The fantastic new pattern from Sarah Wilson (who you may know as The Sexy Knitter) is a tank that converts to a cowl, and back again.
The tank is knit from Haiku, our fingering-weight superwash Merino/bamboo/nylon blend. It's shown here in Minty Unicorn, Yarnover Truck's exclusive colorway. The colorway and Yarnover Truck's territory in southern California inspired the light and airy tank.
One of Sarah's specialties is well-constructed garments, so as she describes it: "Though the lace sports a strong diagonal pattern, the fabric does not bias, which means you won’t fight to keep the tank in place. A simple tube designed with a bit of negative ease, this style highlights the bust, nips in at the waist, and hides the tummy, all at once!"
You can get the pattern for your own Vicissitude here. To find Haiku, visit our website to find a local or online retailer. If Haiku is not available at your LYS, you can place a special order through any store that carries Anzula. (Minty Unicorn is available only through Yarnover Truck and can't be special ordered through any other store.)
