Simple 'Tee' - Shibui Twig Version

Simple 'Tee' - Shibui Twig Version

“Simply cool.”

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.

Knit in Shibui Twig, this simple tee can be worn with or without a layer underneath. The linen/silk/wool fiber creates a cool, beautiful fabric that straddles elegant and casual. The piece feels very "boutique." We knit this sleeveless version in the longer length, but you can mix it up! Add sleeves for a year-round sweater, or knit the cropped length for a little summer tee...it's all up to you.

Pick up the pattern below, and then choose your color of Twig. The Basic Details tab will tell you how many skeins you need for your size.
