The Fresh Favorite Tee is reminiscent of my favorite, sadly worn out, ready-to-wear tee that I picked up at a local boutique years ago. This comfy, cool and slightly cropped loose-fitting tee with a high-low hem is the hand knit re-imagination of what was my go-to warm weather top.
The Fresh Favorite Tee is worked in Queen City Yarn’s Coleman, a gorgeous silk and linen blend DK weight yarn. A relaxed gauge, combined with the silk and linen, yields a beautiful fabric with fluid movement.
This tee features saddle shoulders and a wide scoop neckline. Short rows ensure a great fit across the shoulders and front neckline and also shape the bottom split hem. The tee is worked flat and seamed to avoid biasing. Hems are worked in single strand double knitting and finished with a sewn tubular bind off. A glossary of special technique tutorials is included.
Size inclusivity is very important to me and I am so happy to offer The Fresh Favorite Tee in 12 sizes! This tee is intended to be worn with 2-6” (5-15 cm) positive ease. If between sizes, sizing down is recommended.
I used Seersucker for my size 5 tee, modeled with 6 inches of positive ease and an OOAK colorway (Green Thumb from the Studio Series Club last summer) for Caitlyn’s size 1 tee, modeled with 6 inches of positive ease.
Many of my awesome test knitters chose to use Queen City Yarn’s NEW Coleman Silk/Linen blend for their Fresh Favorite Tees!
