Needles & Hook

  • 24” circular needles in size US 6 (4 mm) or size needed to obtain gauge.
  • 24” circular needles in size US 5 (3.75 mm) or 1 size smaller than needle used to obtain gauge.
  • One spare size US 6 (4 mm), for three-needle BO.

Berroco’s Quinoa yarn is cotton, with a hint of nylon. It has a wonderfully seedy texture that is enhanced by the use of a Slipped St/Rev Stk pattern. This tee was designed for easy summer wear.
It is knit bottom-up in the round. After separating and working the sleeves, the shoulders are seamed using three-needle BO. The neck and sleeve trim are picked up and worked. Take the time to knit a swatch and wet-block it! I tend to be a tight knitter, so you may need to go down in needle size.
