tank and shell

Lots of folks have asked what's shown under the jackets in our last post. They're both Blue Sky Alpaca patterns and yarns. Here're the details.

fitted tank
The Fitted Tank is under the brown jacket. It's knit with Blue Sky Alpaca's Dyed Cotton. You'll need 3 (3, 3, 4, 4) hanks to make the tank with a finished bust size of 31 (33, 35.5, 39, 43.5) inches.

ribbon shell
The blue shell under the tan coat is the Ribbon Shell. For a finished measurement of 33.5 (35.5, 36.5, 38.5, 42.5) inches, you'll need 6 (6, 6, 6, 8) skeins of Blue Sky Alpaca and Silk worked doubled or 3 (3, 3, 3, 4) skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas Dyed or Organic Cotton worked single.

The tank and the shell are both nicely styled basics that can be worn year-round and, as you've seen, they look great under a jacket!
