Yarn Requirements:

  • 870 (1136, 1136, 1136, 1420, 1420) yards of MC
  • Modular squares each use ~5 yards of CC, for 28 (32, 36, 36, 40, 40) squares.
  • Garment shown used ~50 (55, 60, 60, 65, 65) yards of each of 3 CC.

The Fairlane Tee is a loose-fitting, simple tee-style pullover with multi-color modular squares across the bodice and short-row shaping and three-needle bind off at the shoulders. The tee is knit in two pieces from the bottom up with Garter stitch edging at the bottom and sleeves.

As a bonus, because the neck is a wide ballet style crew, and the front and back are identical – that means the pullover is reversible. It’s also a great way to use up leftover yarn for those modular squares!

I designed the tee for a summer feel, using a linen blend yarn and a very generous 4” of ease at the bust for a loose fit. Because the top is reversible, you could easily change the color choices and order of the contrasting colors for the modular squares on the front and back to create a different look.
