Rock It Tee

I was supposed to be working at home today but I ended up in the store. Something got me thinking about Tanis’ Rock It Tee. Maybe it was the fact that mine is almost finished and I should pull it out. Maybe it was looking at pretty yarn from Hedgehog Fibres while I was packing boxes.

I used to think that summer knits weren’t for me, boy was I wrong! There is nothing more comfortable than an easy breezy knit top. Over the past few years I’ve been working steadily towards building up my summer knits wardrobe. I’ve got a few summer knits in my closet now but what I realize was missing is a staple, go-to, v-neck tee. I’ve chosen to create tone on tone stripes by alternating between fingering and mohair yarn in my favourite shade of blue, but this basic shape lends itself to infinite possibilities when it comes to stripes and colour blocking.

Knit top down, flat until the neck shaping is complete and in the round after that.

You can purchase the pattern on Tanis’ website. 

I put together some summery combinations. Hedgehog Skinny Singles and Kidsilk Lace. Singles and mohair from Old Soul Fiber Co and then tosh merino light and Shibui Silk Cloud. 

See all our fingering weight yarns.

When I was talking pictures today I forgot about Uschitita.

This is Sarah’s Rock It Tee. 
LOVE how this turned out! Light weight and luxurious! So happy with the colour combo. Sometimes simple is best. I did the 4th size and added long sleeves. I picked up the sleeves as directed then knit 2 stripes (16 rows) before decreasing 2 stitches every 8 rows until desired sleeve length. 

I’m into the border on Pressed Flowers. The rows are really long right now so they aren’t quick. Hopefully I will be finished next week.
