Quince & Co Marai Tank Project


Marai is a timeless, easy to wear sleeveless shell gets a modern twist in Hanna Maciejewska’s Marai. Vertical and horizontal braided accents and an asymmetrical, split hemline add contemporary details to a classic silhouette, while Hanna’s signature top down, seamless construction methods and Quince & Co Kestrel's cool drape make knitting Marai a breeze.


Tank is worked from the top down, worked flat through the neckline and upper body shaping, then worked in the round for the lower body. Neckline and upper body shaping is created with German short rows. Slip-stitch pattern details run vertically down the front and sides, and a horizontal braid divides the lower body from the asymmetric lower hem.
