Cacambo by Norichan Knits. Cacambo tank top was inspired by the character Cacambo from Voltaire’s novel, Can-dide. Cacambo is Candide’s trustworthy valet. He is a strong contrast to the other characters, being the most practical. This is how I feel about this simple tank top. While designed as a cropped tank top, it also works well as a vest or layered over a dress! Similar to the other patterns from my Candide Knits collection, Cacambo is simpler to knit than it would appear. The fun of this tank top comes from mixing and matching different colors of yarn!
