Labrador T is named after my favorite wild harvested tea. This tee is a fond reminder of my time in the bush on long expeditions, sometimes we brewed it with spruce, pine, and cedar for added nutrients and a little more variety. So, what colours do you fancy today for your Labrador T.

Choose between the 3 stripe and 5 stripe version, both included with this pattern.

This comfy sleeveless top is a summer favorite in fingering weight cotton. A simple design with a few little details you’ll love wearing it. Let the yarn do the work with its easy wash and wear properties there is no excuse to not wear it all the time.

This size inclusive design also features two neckline options depending if you’re concerned about hiding bra straps. It also has a split hem to accommodate wider hips.

3 stripe version
Model is 5’9” with a 45” chest circumference and wearing size 5 without modification. This top’s length can easily be modified while keeping in mind that lengthening will take additional yardage.

The pattern was developed for Bush Party pack which includes a full skein and 3 minis of Appalachian Trail (enough to make up to size 6). For size 7 you will need more of the main colour and size 8 and 9 you’ll need 2 Bush Party packs.

5 stripe version
Model is 5’3” with a 43” chest circumference and is wearing the size 5 with 1 inch of extra length

The pattern was developed for our Appalachian Trail Crew box.

All sizes require 1 box for stripes
sizes 1-5 require 1 skein of main colour
sizes 6-9 require 2 skeins of main colour
