Happy almost-August, everyone! Can you believe how quickly the months have gone by? I still look at the calendar with surprise… half expecting it to say something else… yet here we are, approaching the August long weekend. Not ready for summer to end, I want to celebrate by releasing my latest knitting pattern, the Drop It Tee!! Thank you for the love you have shown this Tee on Instagram so far… I so appreciate it all!
Brought to you in collaboration with my friends at KnitPicks, my new design uses KnitPicks Comfy Worsted Yarn, a soft and squishy blend of 75% Pima Cotton and 25% Acrylic. Machine washable and lightweight, this yarn is a delight to work with! And can we talk about the colour? I have been eying the shade Silver Sage for so long…and now I know why. It is a perfect summer shade!
The Drop It Tee is a size-inclusive beginner-intermediate level pattern, with simple purls and knits to create the stockinette or garter stitches, and the easy-to-learn drop stitch. The drop stitch is worked like a knit stitch, but the yarn is wrapped around the needle more than once. It looks complicated, but I promise — it is not! The garment is composed of two identical rectangles, with an elegant boat neckline. Sizes offered range from a 29″/74 cm bust to a 58″/147 cm bust, and the tee is meant to be worn with a good amount of ease. I made a size small and you can see how comfortably it fits!

I would knit it with a circular needle. No need for two rectangles.
Yes! I love knitting in the round as well! This particular pattern was written knitted flat but perhaps next one I will do in the round. 😊
