Sel Gris features an asymmetrical V-neck with ribbed details and matching ribbed sleeves. The ribbed part of the neckline is worked with the right front after having picked up additional stitches at the left neckline.

The hem can alternatively be worked with a raw edge or a matching ribbed part. The waist shaping gives the tee an elegant look. The sleeves are worked by picking up stitches around armhole. The sleeve cap is shaped with short rows.

This timeless tee is going to be your partner for many seasons. It can be worn with a suit as well as with a lovely summer skirt or with worn-out jeans.

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

Take time to check gauge and adjust needle size if necessary to get gauge.
I strongly recommend to wash and block your swatch, as linen tends to shrink in width and to grow in length with washing!
