Popular on Ravelry this week is a classic tee made with one of my favourite yarns, Quince & Co Sparrow (I’m planning another Gillespie with it – I wear it so much that it may become the Summer Haley-special).
From the designer
“Edie is a simple tee worked with raglan increases from the top down. First you have to work back and forth until V-Neck shaping is complete, then in the round to the end. Textured stripes will help to compensate the yarn’s tendency to bias. Short-row shaping for the rounded bottom gives a casual finish. Stitches for short sleeves are picked up after body is complete, to work the sleeves top down in the round. An optional neck finishing is provided. Sample shows unfinished, raw edges.”
To get the finished product you want, keep a few things in mind:
- Linen is VERY stretchy, you may consider going down a size.
- Always swatch before starting your project and block your swatch to get an accurate tension.
- Use our Pantyhose Hack to manage your linen yarn.
