Oryx detail | The Knitting Vortex

Oryx was originally published in the book Doomsday Knits and now available as an individual pattern from The Knitting Vortex. Read about my inspiration here.

Easy to slip on over tactical gear or your mesh bralette, Oryx is a drapey tank that is fitted at the bottom with volume at the top and sides – and looks stunning with jodhpurs! Inspired by Margaret Atwood’s mysterious character, and knit in a lustrous silk blend yarn, Oryx will haunt the dreams of any apocalyptic survivor.
