Simple Tee - String Blossom Version

Simple Tee - String Blossom Version

"Simply Heaven."

The definition of luxury, we are thrilled with our latest version of the Simple Tee. Knit with String Blossom - a super smooth, high twist sport-weight yarn - it may be hard to wear anything else. Marrying the best attributes of cashmere and silk: softness from both the cashmere and the silk, strength and structural integrity of silk, and then spun in the finest Italian mills, this dynamo of a fiber is such a pleasure sliding across your needles. Just the right amount of oomph and energy in each stitch. We love all the neutral colors, but maybe 'Old Rose' or 'Citron'? Casual or dressy, this top has drape and style for days.

Knit flat in pieces, then seamed, featuring vent edges with a tidy slipped-stitch edging, and a flattering ballet neckline. Pictured here at hip length with long sleeves, you can customize both sleeve and hem length to your liking. A treat just for you - in the making and wearing.

Sizing note: Given the weight and nature of this fiber combination, consider going down a size when making this version of our Simple Tee - particularly if you are in between sizes.

Grab the pattern below and choose a color String Blossom–see the Basic Details tab for the number of skeins you'll need for your size.
