SUNSET Tee

Introducing my first actual garment made out of Color Changing Cotton: Sunset Tee - a little summer top. Now we just need the weather to go with it...

Yarn: Color Changing Cotton 6ply in colorway SUNSET (2.5 skeins)
Where to get yarn: Wollesyarncreations.etsy.com
Needles: 4 mm (US 6)
Pattern: Tee for Two by Helene Rush
Changes made:
a)Instead of seaming the sides I did a 3-needle bind-off and then knit the sleeves in the round.
b)I added a knitted border in reverse stockinette around the neckline.

  1. wow that T is just stunning! i saw a post you made in the Rav Yarn Sales group about the Wolle's easter sale, but i didn't realize that you were actually the one running the shop! i adore your yarns and it's good to put a face to all that cottony dyed loveliness :)

  2. This Tee is a wonderful use of your truly spectacular yarns!! Will you make the pattern available? The "Orange Chocolate" is magnificent, tempting, I want an excuse to buy it, and this would be it (although I really was planning a vest. . . do you think I could make that work?)
    You are very talented, and I'm so glad you are sharing your talents with others this way.

  3. Thank you all for your kind comments. Sorry I have not responded earlier.

    The pattern for the Tee is called "Tee for Two" and available from Knit One, Crochet Two.
