Inverleith
A boxy tee with beautiful drape, Inverleith is my new favourite summer basic. It’s worked top down with a fun and easy construction — no short rows. Inverleith is specifically designed to have similar proportions across the size range; with two options for cup sizing built in it’s a boxy shape that works with whatever curves you have. The shoulders are worked in one piece and then divided for front and back. The front and back are each worked flat and then joined in the round at the underarm. Folded cuffs are worked by picking up stitches around the armhole and the neck is finished with a simple edging worked by picking up stitches, knitting one round then binding off. There is very minimal finishing.

Inverleith is written for 12 sizes and each size includes two bust shaping options. It is designed to be worn with 6-8” of positive ease at the full bust. The shoulders and chest have different proportions to each other in the smallest vs largest size. This allows for the sleeve bands to be in a similar position on the body across the size range. The result is that different sizes look different laid flat but closer in style when worn.

Inverleith was initially launched as our first Ysolda Sweater Club pattern, and we’re hosting a knitalong that’s open to everyone, whether you’re using the club yarn or substituting.
