Prettie Tittie Tank Top Pattern
The idea for this cutie came from these awesome new pants I bought on one of my late-night-can't-sleep-lets-online-shop escapades, and then realised I have zero tops that work with them! Totally normal right? I needed a halter top that's fairly cropped to go with the pants’ high waist, but doesn't have side boob or other too revealing features. And so this cutie was born. The simple ribbing body ensures that you feel snug and secure, and can easily adjust to your preferred length, and the extra wide halter section ensures the cups enclose your girls fully and no accidental side boob action occurs :-P Because lets face it, some things are more sexy when left to the imagination :-P I hope you love this top just as much as I do, and please tag me in your makes on Instagram or Facebook and use the #PrettieTittieTankTop
The construction of the top makes it easy to try on as you go, and adjust your sizing along the way (moving up or down in sizes for smaller/bigger cups for example. The construction is bottom up, starting with the ribbing in the round, and then knitted flat after that with slight decreases moving up. The halter section wraps around the side of the body to cover the sides in all the right places.

"Strong is the new sexy"
It may come as a surprise to you...NOOOT...:P that I was never a ballerina! :) I was always built different, built tough and strong, not dainty and lovely like the girls on TV (even in the 80s). As a young girl and a teenager, that bothered me! A lot. Then as an adult, I grew to understand that I actually like being strong much more and learned to embrace the power, rather than grieve over what I don't look like.
When I was in my early 30s I then discovered "Strongman" as a sport, and my life was changed. Finally a sport where being built strong, actually was a benefit!
"Strong is the new sexy" is based on the picture you see here, which used to be my profile picture for a looooong time, and which got me through the times when I fell back into thought patterns of "why can't I be skinny?"
So here we go! Life story....and a new colourway to match :)
Each skein of yarn is hand dyed with professional acid dyes and treated with wool care after, for a perfect finish. As each batch is dyed by hand, there can be slight colour variations between each batch, so if you wish to purchase more than one skein for your knitting or crochet project, or require a different base, please get in touch and I will ensure each skein is from the same batch, and/or on the base required.
The extrafine merino wool makes this yarn luxuriously soft and bouncy for next to skin comfort. A little nylon is added for extra durabilty.
The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
This yarn is so versatile and can be used for any next to skin project (scarves, jumpers etc) as well as items where a little more durability is required such as socks and gloves.
Please also note that while we do our best to accurately capture the colour of the yarn in the picture, the colours may slightly differ due to variations in monitors and screens.It is recommended to handwash your yarn/ finished object and lay flat to dry.

Every SINGLE time I've ordered from Stitchcraft & Wizardry Anna has been SO helpful! She has dyed up custom mini skeins for me (which hardly ANYBODY will do), she has taken a bunch of photos & sent them through to me so I could see colour combos & she takes so much time to give me advice & help plan my next project! Could not recommend highly enough!
