Now available: Camellia Tank pattern!

I’m happy to report that the pattern I designed for Making Issue 2, the Camellia Tank, is now available as a standalone pattern! This sweater was inspired by Camellia Fiber Company‘s incredible superbulky black-and-white handspun (entirely undyed), and makes a great showcase for this yarn or other dramatic superbulky. It’s a simple sleeveless shell but with some very specific details to keep all of the edges as clean and tidy as possible, given the nature of the yarn. It looks great on its own, but if you choose a size with more ease it would also look fantastic layered over a button-down, turtleneck or shirtdress.

It’s a very quick knit as this gauge, and a great way to spend some time with a knockout yarn. And you can now download the pattern at Ravelry. (The yarn is available from Camellia, spun to order.)

My thanks again to Carrie Bostick Hoge for inviting me to contribute to her beautiful magazine!

  1. Wow this is really spectacular. Love the layering. Cold air usually gets up under a top like this one for me, so layering makes that complaint disappear. The yarn is beautiful. What an eye catcher. Great design

  2. I’m thinking, “bulky? Ugh!” until I saw it.
    Very nice! What a great showcase for handspun!

  3. Congrats Karen!!! It’s a very beautiful pattern! I love the simplicity.

  4. Would you ever plan to re-issue the pattern in a smaller-weight yarn and gauge?

  5. Congratulations on the new pattern publication ! You’re absolutely right that you’re in is amazing I’m I have to pick some up myself 😊

    • Update: just bought it, and some Gentle Giant (Purl Soho’s superbulky) in “Cowrie” (shell pink) to knit it up next month. Excited and will let you know how it goes!

  6. Congratulations on the new design!

    Also – wow, seeing photos of the piece earlier I had not realised this was an undyed yarn. Beautiful.
