The Design

"Impressionistic style."

This deceptively simple top is cleverly knit from the center out to each side, rather than from top to bottom or vice versa. A modern pivot to a familiar style! A tapered shape allows for plenty of ease at the bust, while providing a relaxed and flattering bottom edge at hip length.

We knit this transitional tee in Berroco Spree, a lovely DK-weight blend of wool and cotton with an ‘impressionistic’ color palette! Using a spray-effect dye technique, they’ve added dappled, gradient color to the strand—calling to mind Monet’s gardens and sunsets, or Van Gogh’s starry skies and landscapes. With the softness of your favorite t-shirt, the Sideways Tee in Spree is sure to be an all-season favorite!

Errata & Clarifications

With a simple shape and stockinette stitch, this tee is all about the yarn. Choose a yarn (or combination of yarns) that will give you a soft draping fabric. And be sure to pay special attention to your swatch on this one! Unlike a typical knitted garment, this tee is knit sideways, so your row gauge will determine your fit and your stitch gauge will affect your length. Work a nice big swatch, and note your unblocked gauge for reference while you knit.
