Simple 'Tee' Using Rowan Kidsilk Haze
Simple 'Tee' Using Rowan Kidsilk Haze
Here's the light little top we've been looking for! You can knit it to a cropped hip length, or longer with side vents; in a sport- or light-DK-weight yarn or a lace weight for dressy sheerness. Vent edges and sleeveless armholes have a tidy slipped-stitch edging. You'll wear―and knit―this "tee" again and again.
Kidsilk Haze makes a simple tee just that much dressier. Our good friend Clara Parkes calls Kidsilk Haze "an exquisite, special-occasion yarn", and we couldn't agree more. Pairing this light-as-a-breath fiber with the simple tee lines gives you both a special occasion top and the tee you'll want to wear every day. Add sleeves and you can wear nearly year round―including cool summer nights. Why wait for that special occasion?
