Designer: Ann Budd
The idea for this casual tee came to me almost immediately when I first saw the two red tones of Coastal. I knew that I wanted to combine them in narrow stripes in a top-down circular yoke design. I didn’t swatch for long before I came up with the simple 8-row pattern consisting of 4 rows of each color. For a more interesting boundary between colors, the first row of each is worked in a simple knit-one-slip-one slip-stitch pattern that creates a subtle texture.
The tee begins with a provisional cast-on at the neck. The yoke is worked in rounds to the armholes, with increases along the way to shape the shoulders. Stitches are placed on holders for the sleeves while the body is worked in rounds to the lower edge. The sleeves are also worked in rounds. Simple k1, p1 ribbing finishes the neck, body, and sleeves.
