This pattern was first released in June 2021 in the Interweave pattern collection Quick + Easy Knits Vol. 2. Using a different yarn I have now re-worked the pattern to include 22 different bust measurements (which is 14 sizes more than in the original pattern). I also added helpful tips on how to make your very own size combining a certain body circumference with a certain sleeve circumference.

FELDSPAR tee has an easy seamless construction and is perfectly suited for beginner knitters. It is worked in the round from the bottom up. Then a few stitches are bound off at the underarm and the front and the back are work flat separately. Since FELDSPAR features a beautiful boat neck, no neckline or shoulder shaping is required. After the shoulder seams are closed with the Three Needle Bind-Off, stitches for the sleeves are picked up and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.

FELDSPAR tee is made from a lovely cotton, viscose and linen blend yarn which has an extraordinarily pretty drape and is perfect for a spring or summer garment. The resulting fabric is airy and feels very soft to the skin.

The boxy shape of this cropped drop shoulder tee is softened by a beautiful eyelet border that runs along all edges of FELDSPAR tee. My favorite detail is the shoulder where the two eyelet borders from the front and the back run right next to each other.

The pattern went through tech editing before release.
