Pimentón is a seamless tee with a round neck and a garter saddle. This stylish color block top is knitted fully-fashioned thus no final facings have to be added.

This modern linen tee will soon be a wardrobe favorite from hot summer days to early autumn. Pick your preferred color combination and have fun with this quick project.

The pattern includes descriptions for waist shaping but you may also decide on a straight body or an A-Line shaping to achieve your preferred fit.

This pattern uses the contiguous method developed by Susie Myers.

Linen Spices is a collection of 3 modern top patterns inspired by spices and each worked in a different linen yarn.

XS (S, M, L, XL, XXL) to fit bust sizes 67-77 (77-87, 87-97, 97-107, 107-117, 117-127) cm/26-30” (30-34”, 34-38”, 38-42”, 42-46”, 46-50”)
Recommended ease: 0-10cm/0-4” positive ease
Sample is shown in size L on a 102 cm/40” bust

MC: 2 (3, 3, 3, 4, 4) skeins Quince & Co. Sparrow or approx. 310 (360, 410, 465, 530, 600) meters/ 340 (395, 450, 510, 580, 655) yards Sport Weight Yarn to achieve given gauge
CC1: 1 (1, 1, 1, 2, 2) skein(s) Quince & Co. Sparrow or approx. 100 (125, 140, 155, 185, 215) meters/ 110 (135, 155, 170, 200, 235) yards Sport Weight Yarn to achieve given gauge
CC2: 1 (1, 1, 1, 2, 2) skein(s) Quince and Co. Sparrow or approx. 100 (125, 140, 155, 185, 215) meters/ 110 (135, 155, 170, 200, 235) yards Sport Weight Yarn to achieve given gauge

Each knitter knits differently, so given yardage is an estimate. For size L, I used nearly every meter of my skeins, so I recommend buying one more skein per color to be on the safe side.

Sample shown in colorways Sans 200 (main color, MC), Port 207 (contrasting color 1, CC1), Paprika 210 (contrasting color 2, CC2)

US 3/3.25 mm circular needle

22 sts x 30 rows = 10cm/4”, in stockinette stitch with needle US3/3.25 mm after washing and blocking

I highly recommend to measure your gauge before and after washing to get your desired fit of the garment. Linen tends to shrink when washed.

Take time to check gauge and adjust needle size if necessary to get gauge.
