“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all.”
- Emily Dickinson

This pattern can be found in issue one of Nomadic Knits, which is available to purchase in print through our website, select local yarn shops, or as a digital download through Ravelry (click the e-book link above).

Issue one is currently sold out in print, and will be reprinted in mid-2020.

The Beautifully Basic Tee is knit top-down, in one piece, seamlessly, in Olive & Two Ewe’s Dickinson, an exquisite wool and silk blend.

We have updated this pattern to include directions for long sleeves as well!

This tee is the first in a series of beautiful basics. Every issue of Nomadic Knits will include one garment or accessory that is the simplest version of itself; a blank canvas to let the yarn shine, a perfect design for beginners, for social knitting, of for binge watching your favorite show.
