Over the Top Tee

BY HEIDI KIRRMAIER

Somewhere between a tee and a tank, this classic top makes a wonderful multi-season wardrobe staple.  Knit from the top down, its front and back shoulder sections are worked flat, then joined in the round for the body, with the top’s subtle geometric design features completed using short rows.  As a bonus, the body section is worked inside out to reduce purling!  This size-inclusive pattern is offered in sizes XXS through 6X and is meant to be worn with 3.5-10cm (1.5-4″) positive ease.
The sample shown was knit in a cotton/hemp/rayon blend and we think it would be an equally lovely dressy top, knit in elann Luna, our lustrous rayon/cotton blend.
