happy tennis knitting!

wimbledon tank

When I was a little girl, I used to spend my birthday watching Wimbledon on tv with my grandfather. I modelled this ladies' tank after one of his old, vintage tennis shirts. A wide collar and deep neck slit give this tank lots of retro style, while the even lines of seeded rib keep the overall look classic. And since it's knit in a super soft, fine-gauged cotton (in Wimbledon approved white!), it's lightweight and cool - just right for playing on the grass in July!
