Long in the Making March 12, 2012 – Posted in: Mondays with Mona, Project Ideas

A few years ago I designed a little top for my daughter and called it “Toddler Tee” in the pattern I published. Since then I have gotten quite a few requests to make it up for adult sizes which I did but it took longer than expected to write this pattern. I am finally done and here is the “Grown-up Tee”.

It is available in a large range of sizes, from 29″ to 52.25″ and uses 4-9 skeins of Manos Silk Blend. There are plenty other yarns you could knit it in, it asks for 22 stitches to 4″ which is your essential DK weight gauge.

The tee is great for layering as well as worn on its own, it looks lovely knit up in many textures, be it cotton, linen or wool. Worked in the round it knits up quickly, finishing is limited to two little underarm seams. The lace pattern is of the simpler kind, though the impact is high, as you will easily realize looking at the sample at Espace Tricot. You can buy the pattern in store or right here.
