The word “mysterium” is rooted in Ancient Greek and Latin and is known as a plural of “mystery” or “secret.” Also described as “various unknown elements thought to make up existing forms of matter, or a substance seen as an elemental or pure form of something else.” New patterns sometimes feel like a collection of mysteries.

The more we allow ourselves to be a beginner, and make mistakes, the more knowledge we will be able to collect. Unravel the mystery of new techniques with this beginner-friendly drop-shoulder tee!

Knit seamlessly from the top-down, with sleeves being knit onto the body after the fact. Chart and written instructions for the chart are both available. Instructions for special techniques are also included in the pattern.
