The design for Tidebreak tee was inspired by the ocean - the exciting yet calming sound of the waves crashing onto the beach - the beauty of the broken shells, the ocean rocks, and different patterns in the sand revealed by the tide.
The Tidebreak tee is intended to fit with 2-4” of positive ease. This somewhat cropped tee is knit with seamless top down construction and a touch of short row shaping for a slightly longer back.
This design includes simple stranded color work and slip-stitch colorwork.
Beginner friendly for sure!
Choose between knitting with a single strand of dk weight for each colorway, or hold two strands of sock / fingering weight together (as shown in the sample)
