Renata’s Cropped Tee is an adorable layering piece. It can be worn by itself or as a vest, on top of dresses, shirts and long sleeves. The combination of baby alpaca, mohair, and silk creates an extremely comfortable and airy fabric, that drops beautifully.

Body is knit bottom up and in the round, then divided for front and back. Both upper front and back are knit flat. Shoulders are attached together using the 3 Needle Bind Off Method. As the name states, this is a cropped tee. You can easily modify that by knitting the body until you have the desired length. Please note you you will need more yarn than it is suggested in this pattern if you opt to make it longer.

Measurements:
Body length: 21 (23, 26, 29, 32, 35, 38, 41, 44) cm.
Chest circumference: 114 (117, 121, 125, 129, 133, 137, 141, 145) cm.

Please, note that this tee looks its best with a 20-30 cm of positive ease.

Yardage:
The use of Lace Lang (or other lace weight yarn) is optional, but it gives a softer feel and it looks amazing combined with aran weigh yarn.
