The Design

"Handknit athleisure."

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.

For this comfortably weighty Sideways Tee, we turned to Berroco Pima 100—a beautiful workhorse of a cotton yarn. Four plies of pure, long-staple Peruvian cotton are tightly spun together for a worsted-weight yarn with a smooth softness that produces a superior stitch definition. Plus, Pima 100 promises a solid durability that’s wonderful for warm, active days.

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.
