Leonie Using Tahki Ripple
Leonie Using Tahki Ripple
Leonie is a relaxed, slouchy tee designed by one of our design crushes, Cocoknits’ Julie Weisenberger! We love how this everyday top knits up quickly, and the finished fabric is smooth and cool and weighty all at the same time. And bonus—the pattern adds some techniques to your knitting repertoire; learn how to work a neckline with a neat bias bind off technique!
We knit this version of Leonie in a rippling ribbon of cool mercerized cotton—Tahki Ripple. This undulating, thick-and-thin fiber adds textural interest to the simplest of stitch patterns and is eminently wearable in warm weather. And a quiet sheen adds intrigue to this light top. Knit up, Leonie is remarkably touchable, with a soft and supple drape. We definitely wear this one constantly!
Designed with 8-12" intended positive ease around bust (this is what makes it drop off the shoulders), we have listed finished dimensions as well as bust size on our Basic Details tab. First measure and select your bust size, then find corresponding size on the pattern. Choose a color, pick up the pattern, and you're on your way! (If you don't see the pattern below, that means we are temporarily sold out. But we'll have more again soon, so please check back.)
