Huevos Tank

Introducing The Huevos Tank

Step into summer with a go-to lace project. Huevos is fun to wear but also the perfect wip to have in your project bag for those hot summer days. The tank top is easy to layer and is also the type of project you want to have with you so that you change quickly into something cooler.

This is an excellent introduction to lace knitting with detailed directions and full written and charted stitch pattern. You can see each new section or technique being worked in the accompanying videos which you can pause and watch as many times as you like.

Carol Feller

Meet The Teacher

Carol trained initially as a textile artist and then as a structural engineer. While both of these backgrounds are very different the influences can be seen in her design work which is well-shaped, flattering to wear and enjoyable to knit.

She strives to design clothing with a difference: not overly complex, but still giving a very unique end product. She likes to work with different construction methods, so long as they enhance the knitting experience and make for a more intuitively put-together knitted item.

Carol has been widely published in books and magazine and travels the world teaching in yarn shops and fibre festivals. The classes she teaches cover a wide range of subjects from cables and chart reading, through garment shaping and customisation right through to short rows and colourwork. In her classes you'll move from learning the basics to refining your knitting skills and fixing problems.
