Tantric Diamonds

I like patterns that are different. Something unique that not everybody has made. I just found one of the greatest. There is under a 100 projects on Ravelry for the Tantric Tank.

This free pattern is really more of formula than a pattern but that is what makes it great. You can use any type of yarn and any gauge. There is no shaping. So it is also a great beginner pattern. Just 2 straight panels and 2 thin ties. Some creative semming. Voila! You are done. I made a couple of small adjustments for my ample-ness (47.5" bust). One adjustment is I made the panels a couple of inches longer. The other is I made it an inch wider. Even with adjustment I only needed about 900 yards of aran cotton yarn. Worked one panel in an Irish Moss Diamond stich and the other in a Seed Diamond stitch.


  1. That's a beautiful sweater. Nice job, Celia! It looks lovely on you. Chelle

  2. It's really pretty, I especially like the different stitches.

  3. beautiful! I'd love to make this but can no longer get the pattern from designer on rsavelry! Could you share it with me or provide another link for the pattern?
