Retro Rings is a simple pattern that is perfect for those times when you need some good mindless knitting! The pattern was inspired by vintage beach posters which feature sunsets and the ocean represented by thick bands of colors. Knit from the top down in the round, this tee requires no seaming and makes a great beginner garment project. For the rings of color I chose tones that had a 70’s retro feeling to them from Brooklyn Tweed’s Peerie yarn. This pattern would also be perfect for using up small amounts of leftover yarns to showcase in each of the rings!
