This lovely summer t-shirt with pretty capped sleeves is a design from UK yarn company Sirdar.
(pattern leaflet 9030)
It has a lovely flattering shape, coming in at the waist and flaring gently at the lower waist.
The flared shaping is achieved by decreasing by knitting 2 together a number of times on each side of the back and front pieces with a large stretch of non-shaping in between. Easy peasy!!
The back is nicely fitting.
The t-shirt has a flattering scooped neckline and all edges are two simple rows of garter stitch.
The yarn I used is Sirdar Snuggly Baby Bamboo in colour putty. It is a DK weight yarn (8ply for us Aussies) - 80% bamboo and 20% wool. It is so soft and the bamboo gives it a lovely sheen.
Until next time, happy quilting, knitting, sewing, crafting ....
