Here 'tis...

As promised, the Funky Tank being modeled by its happy owner.

I think I picked up too many stitches for the armbands, as they flare out a bit. Plus the pattern seems to call for some pretty big arm holes. Little Man is wearing a cotton tank under the sweater cuz otherwise you'd surely be able to see his chest/tummy.

I'm happy with how it fits tho- he'll be able to wear it all summer and probably into the Fall with a t-shirt underneath.
Funky Tank Top (Zoe Mellor's "Adorable Knits for Toddlers")
Used Knitpicks' Shine yarn throughout- less than 1 ball for most of the colors. The main color (light blue) took less than 2 balls.
Took about 1 week to knit (actually, less than a week, but the seaming/weaving took forever)
Size 6 Addi Turbos

cute! It may be a little big, but it definitely fits my mom's motto, "Shut up kid, you'll grow into it." How many times do you think I've heard that? :D

Those colors are gorgeous! He really looks cute in it and looks like he likes his new tank!

What cute kids. Nice site. The sweater looks great. I always knit things a size too big for my kids. I 'm also a "shut up you'rr grow into it" kinda mom. I love the knitted dinos. I may have to whip up a few for my little man.

Mwha! What a cutie! I have been glad in the past to knit bigger for my daughter. It is nice to get some wear out of your hard-work knits!
