  • Join us for our Exclusive Head In The Clouds (Knit-Along)!

    The Live KAL has finished, but you can still join to complete this KAL in your own time!

    This luxurious tank top includes a custom Intarsia Chart for the "face" motif knit from beautiful Belangor™ French Angora - the perfect fluffy blur for this fashion forward design.

    The pattern worked flat in pieces from the bottom up. Shoulders are seamed together using the 3 needle bind-off. Sides are joined with mattress stitch. Neck ribbing is worked in the round from picked up stitches around the neckline. All techniques will be discussed during the KAL.

    Learn pro intarsia tips during the KAL which is hosted on Zoom, and join a community of supportive knitters with this new Tribe KAL.

    We'll even discuss how to make your own intarsia design from your own image, if you want to customise to the max!

    Your KAL Kit Includes:

    The choice of colours for your tank (and yarns for the back*) is all yours!

    When you purchase this KAL, we will email you a £100 coupon to apply towards your yarn purchase so you can choose whatever yarn combo you want, along with all the Zoom info! 

    Wait until you get your KAL info email before choosing your yarns...

    (*we highly recommend you use Belangor for the front of the tank, but you could also use Brushed Suri too if you're allergic to angora.)

    Tribe KALs are all about community, yarns friendships, support and laughs. We keep doing them because they are so much fun! Try to keep your Friday evenings free during the KAL so you can get the most out of the KAL. Whilst there is a good amount of technique discussed during the sessions, the idea is more of a "knit-along" as opposed to workshops. It's more of a social thing😁!

    Everyone is welcome, but bear in mind that this pattern is classed as Intermediate for Skill Level. So you should be comfortable with knitting and purling, and ready for some intarsia colourwork and charts.


    As always, please feel free to book a Virtual Shopping Session if you'd like to create a bespoke kit!

  • You'll find all the info on Belangor Angora here.
    You will need approx this many balls of Belangor for the front side of this tank:
    8 (9, 10, 11) (12, 12, 13) (14, 14)

    The back and neck ribbing requires approx this much yardage:
    577 (630, 722, 790) (865, 900, 940) (990, 1010) meters

    (Note that this doesn't include any additional slack for swatching etc..)

    In the sample shown, I have used the following:
    Belangor: 6 x Black, 1 x Charbon, 1 x D'Or, 6 x Baby Pink)
    Clinton Hill Bespoke DK: 1 x Scarlet (for neck ribbing and stripes)

    Zoom and KAL Rules:

    Please do not share Zoom details with anyone, including recordings. All attendees on Zoom are required to have their camera (don't worry - no one will judge you for messy hair, messy bedroom etc 😁). Upon joining, Zoom attendees give permission for the sessions to be recorded and shared amongst KAL participants only. 

    This KAL (and therefore Zoom and Rav group) are only for Tribe customers who purchase their yarn from Tribe.

    I (Milli) will be available for KAL help during Zoom sessions and via the Ravelry group only. I'm afraid I can't address individual help via emails or phone.

    Be kind and courteous.

    No hate speech or bullying.

    No promotions or spam. Please do not use the group to promote products from other shops.

    Respect everyone's privacy.

    Have fun! That's the most important rule.
