Introducing a beauty of a garment from one of our fave designers, Julie Weisenberger of Cocoknits! Leonie is a relaxed, slouchy tee that you'll knit up quickly and wear constantly. The pattern has thoroughly written instructions, clear schematics, and mini tutorials on short row shaping and two types of bind offs—all you'll need to have a super cute top through all the warmer days. Knit in the round in a boxy shape, Leonie is simple and straightforward—just what we like!
We made ours using Lang Corso and love how the thick-thin yarn fills in the empty spaces. Remember it's meant to have 8-12" positive ease; measure twice and knit once! Reach for your favorite summer fiber and get inspired!
