The Design

“A versatile and flattering wardrobe staple.”

Up for a quick and gorgeous garment? We loved how Modern Cotton turned the Cocoknits ‘Gretel’ from a casual sheer tank top into a sophisticated opaque shell you can wear on its own. The A-line shape is very flattering, the draped neck is feminine and the piece is knit seamlessly, so you'll be done in no time.

Modern Cotton's blend of Pima cotton and Modal Rayon (a naturally sourced cellulose fiber) is beautifully twisted to highlight stitch definition and give a soft hand.  A bit thicker than the yarn used in the original, semi-sheer Gretel, the Modern Cotton makes a perfect Northwest summer-weight garment.
