Amy's Nonatum Tank in CEY Provence header
Get ready for summer with the “Nonatum Tank” ...
in Classic Elite's Provence yarn
Shop Provence Yarn
This airy tank design is ideal for spring/summer knitting ... and wear! Knit in Classic Elite's beautifully cabled Provence mercerized cotton DK, Nonatum is a simple lace tank with a well-planned and genuinely interesting construction. Oh, ... did I mention that our own Amy Loberg did the design?

The Nonatum Tank
To achieve the lovely drape of lace from the shoulders, this garment is cast on at the neckline and worked briefly to add strength and substance to the shoulder straps. Then stitches are bound off for armholes, and the front and back are worked separately to the bottom of the armholes. From there, the entire body is worked in the round to create a seamless expanse of the lacey fabric.

Sunny Side Up Provence
It's surprisingly simple, but because of the intriguing construction—and the lacework—we'll call the skill level needed Intermediate. Fortunately, the lace pattern is a symmetrical 12-stitch repeat, so the lace itself is not a major challenge.
Provence Yarn
It's hard to beat Provence for durability. Egyptian cotton has a long staple length, and mercerization offers a spectacular sheen. Add to that Classic Elite's terrific color palette and Provence emerges as a gorgeous workhorse of a yarn that looks great year after year. And at DK gauge, it's a great fit for all sorts of summer tops, light-weight jackets, bags, and even kidswear.
