Simple Summer Tee
Instructor: Winn Archambeau-Muñoz
Tuesday, July 23rd; 1:30pm-4:30pm
Summer is a great time to make a cool tee that has an airy design and is made in a lovely light-weight yarn that knits up quickly. You can choose to make it short or tunic length. Because it is knit in the round after the top is done, you can try it on to make your tee fit you perfectly. The design is for a boxy lace top that is knit to the width of your hips. You will have a variety of 6-8 open stitches to combine in your own design. In this class we map out the pattern to fit your size, practice the designs you select, and you leave with your top planned and started! Come in early if you want to select your yarn. We will be making a dropped shoulder tee with interesting patterns that include twisted dropped stitch and others that are easily memorized and work up quickly.
Level: must be able to: knit and purl, cast-on and bind-off; increase and decrease and knit in the round.
Tools: 600 – 1,000 yards depending on the weight of yarn you choose and how long you want to make it. DK or worsted would be fine. Consider cotton or linen for summer or wool if it is for winter. (See me before class.) Appropriate needles for your yarn, stitch holders, stitch markers (locking and ring), crochet hook, tapestry needle, scissors, waste yarn for lifelines, row marker and regular knitting supplies.
Homework: Bring your yarn for the tee and enough yarn to work the patterns for the gauge swatch.
