With this wonderful collaboration with Cathrin from WalkCollection I had the chance to design with her very new yarn quality Linea.
The alpaca, silk, linen blend is light and warm to wear this Tee in springtime with short sleeves or in fall and winter with long sleeves.
The wide raglan shape, which I called pillars-raglan creates these flattering lines, that enforces the beautific drape of the fabric. The layering look combines the elegance of the yarn with a casual piece.
The summer Tee is worked seamlessly top-down in one piece in stockinette stitch. Start shaping the neck by working short rows and then the yoke is joined to work in the round with raglan increases. Then the sleeve sts are placed on hold and the underarm sts are cast on and you continue to work the body in the round with a bit of A-shaping to the ribbing and first bind off. Pick up the stitches again to join the “second” shirt (color) to the second ribbing and bind off. After the body is completed the sleeve stitches are picked up again to work the sleeves top down in the round to the end.
The pattern comes with optional short and long sleeves.
6 cm (2.36 in) of positive ease built in your size.
