Almond Auger Tank

I started the Auger tank by Pam Allen last summer but hibernated it after finishing the front piece. This year I pulled it back out, worked the back piece and seamed it up.

The pattern calls for Quince and Co Willet, a 100% organic cotton sport weight yarn. I chose the colorway Almond for my tank.

The tank is longer in back than in front (though hard to see in these low light photos, sorry). It is worked bottom-up and seamed together at the sides with a three-needle bind-off at the shoulders. Bottom-up and seaming are two attributes that I tend to shy away from, but the garter stitch looked so nice to knit and wear, so I went for it.

My mods:

I knit the front an inch and a half or so longer than called for, and I worked a border around the neck and each armhole by picking up stitches, knitting one round and then binding off loosely.
