FO: My Last Togue Pond of the Summer (promise)

Oops, I did it again. I made a THIRD Togue Pond Tank!!!
Togue Pond #3
I told you before, I was first introduced to this pattern via Fringe Association a year ago, put it in my queue and thought to myself I am just learning sweater construction so I will wait until I’m more confident to try this one. Then after loving the feel of Berroco Modern Cotton I wanted to make myself more summer knits, so I knit my first Togue Pond Tank at the end of June. I loved it and thought the construction was pretty straight forward but I wanted it to be about 2 inches longer in the front (this was my first bottom up knit). Then my BFF Jess kept dropping hints that she wanted one, so I whipped one up for her next. So I still had enough yarn leftover and wanted to make myself another Togue Pond Tank that was long enough in the front that I didn’t need a tank top to wear underneath. And here she is, in all her glory!

I took these in a quick rush as I was heading to work, so excuse me for not smoothing out the back. I decided to do 3 colors for this one (I’m so wild). I love knits that are edged in black, it makes the colors really pop so I got a skein of Modern Cotton in black to compliment the light grey and dark teal/green I had leftover in my stash. I cannot stress to you enough how much I absolutely love Berroco Modern Cotton. It feels great and the drape on my knits with this is perfect. I am so happy my local yarn store, Fibre Space, started carrying it this spring. I also decided to try using the Double Knot Method for joining a second ball of yarn. I hate sewing in ends and I am not the best at cleanly sewing in yarn. It held up and the joins were also pretty seamless. This is what I love about knitting, with each project I learn something new.

I promise, this is my last Togue Pond Tank this year but I can’t promise you I won’t make more next summer. I’m so glad I added this pattern to my stash! Up next, finishing off the Estelle Cardigan for my aunt and working with another cotton yarn to create a transitional sweater for fall. What’s on your needles right now?

  1. It turned out very well! 🙂 It definitely turned out to be a great piece!!! Go ‘head with your bad self Dana!

  2. I love the color blocking you did on it. Really love the way the black edges sets the other two colors off.

  3. Have you ever had this double knit technique come undone? It looks like the video cuts the yarn ends totally off
