The Mariposa Tee, as featured in the book Dreams, is knit seamlessly using worsted yarn in the round from the bottom up with waist shaping and neck shaping for a better fit. The sleeve cast off and cast on is an innovative way to create sleeves while continuing to knit in the round. The sleeve edges are picked up and knit, and then cast off for a neater appearance. The tee offers two necklines, scoop neck and a high neck. For a good fit add two inches to the size closest to your bust measurement.

Yarn substitution may result in a change in estimated yardage, gauge and finished size of your individual project.

This pattern is available in the following sizes:
Bust 32 (34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46, 48, 50) in.

YARN DETAILS – SERENITY WORSTED (per skein) 80% superwash merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon 175 yds/100 g | hand/machine wash | air dry. Serenity Worsted is regularly priced at $32 but for this KAL, Zen Yarn Garden is offering a discount on the yarns for the volume purchases.

Extra yarn has been included for each bust size to ensure that you will have enough yardage to complete your pattern and also to allow for an extra surprise pattern toward the end of the KAL. We will be offering a bonus pattern to all our KALers to help use up any extra yarn you may have at the end of the KAL. We are also ensuring that you have enough yardage in your dyelot so you can knit from one skein to the next.

The Mariposa Tee has two options – high neckline and a scoop neckline – you will get to choose what you want to knit and the yardage estimates have included enough yarn for both options.

Needles: 24” US 8/5 mm circular knitting needle
