Details: I designed this tee to show off colors on the gradient scale, the finished piece is simple and elegant but fun to knit. The tee is worked as a top down raglan with a scoop neck that will show off your neck and collarbone. Stripes of color, progressing from light to dark, are separated by slipped stitch sections that give a blended look to the color transition rather than an abrupt change. It looks complex but only 1 color is used per round. The hem and sleeves are finished with sleek 1x1 ribbing while the neck is finished with a thick applied i-cord. There is optional gentle waist shaping. This design is suitable for an intermediate knitter as several instructions happen simultaneously.

Finished Bust: 32” (36”, 40”, 44”) 48”, 52”

Needle: US 4 circular and DPNs, US 3 DPNs for neckline icord edging
