It's Spring and Here's My First Fling
You know you wanna see my mom's .
It's the Mission Falls Reversible Tank that didn't quite meet reversible standards in a color sense and is not of Mission Falls. But it's a winner in this house!
My mini loves it and insisted on wearing it today. Too cold to wear without something under it, but a hot little tank nonetheless. It's only 44 degrees at the moment. But hopefully it will warm up by the time I finish a summer tank for myself and I will post another picture in a more springy fashion.
Pattern: Mission Falls Reversible Tank by Kerrie
Yarn Suggested: Mission Falls 1824
Yarn Used: TLC Cotton Plus worsted pink-3707(used 1 full ball and 3/4 of 2nd ball)
Yarn Yardage: not on ball band (what's up with that?)
Needle Size: 5
Now, would I knit this again? Absolutely!
Already got a second on the needles.
Great pattern. Easy, quick knit with cute detail. Love the slight roll in the front and the square neck line. My next one may get a little stripy, but a reversible is definitely on the must knit list. Here's just the tank sans the beautiful model. LOL. I've always been a little nervous about tanks, because I envision this weird floppy armhole, but this one came out just right.
I couldn't resist just one more pic and shout out to show our appreciation to Kerrie for the great pattern...

I love the pink! Very good modeling, I must say and cannot wait for the next version. Isn't Spring Flinging fun? If only the weather could catch up -- I hope to go buy some pansies this weekend to get in the mood.
Very nice, I'm glad she loves it! It's great to see people wearing things you've made. Maybe the next (stripey) one can be reversible.
Lookin' gooood; color, shape, all are just fabulous - - and what a gorgeous mini-mannequin you have! She's got moves like the ones you see the models pulling in Rebecca.
Dammit, now I want one of these tanks - - so much for shortening my spring to-knit list.
The tank is adorable. love the color! And your daughter, wow, she's a beauty!
Yahoo for the reversible tank...It seems like a success to me, reversible or not. And what a cuite you have to show it off!
Wow - that looks great! Your daughter really looks like she is enjoying wearing it which is a bonus with kids isn't it? Can't wait to see the striped / reversible ones that you come up with!
So cute! You solved my Spring knitting problem -I don't wear these skimpy little tanks that are out there, but I could make them for my kids! Oh, I forgot, BOYS! Oh well, I don't know which is prettier - the tank or the model. I just love when they put something on over a turtleneck. You commented on the DB cotton/angora - boy, was that a splurge - I'm still getting over the guilt...
Your tank is tres chic! Your daughter is a star in the making :o)
what a gumdrop! she is the cutest thing ever! and the tank's pretty good-looking too!
Oh goodness, she's adorable! I made my Liv a mission tank last summer. I've been thinking I need to make her more. So cute!
Oh my goodness.. what an absolutely gorgeous child
and that tank is so chic. Well done, Froggy :-)
What an adorable little girl!!!! You've got a very sweet model there :-)
It looks fabulous. What a cutie your daughter is. She got some real modeling talent! :) Awesome job ringing in the spring!
OMG. She looks like she LOVES that adorable outfit, and well she should!! Oh......
she's adorable. future superstar in action.
Adorable daughter and tank!!! I made my girls a Kerrie tank last summer and they love them!
Have fun at the Knit Happens grand opening! I was there not long ago...great shop!
How cute she looks! You did a fabulous job.
Your daughter is gorgeous!! And she is so loving that tank. Now I want to knit it for my little one (maude knows I have enough 1824 Cotton lying around).
That tank and your daughter are just too cute!
