Weekly Fave! Hand Knit Tee

Ashby Tee From Blue Sky Fibers

The cotton T-shirt is the quintessential piece of a wardrobe. Even more special is knitting one, a great warm weather alternative to a sweater. This lovely, casual version of the classic Tee is a pattern available from Blue Sky Fibers. It’s knit in Organic Cotton Skinny, a smooth yarn consisting of multiple plies. Cotton is inelastic, and is not stretchy like wool fibers. Although this characteristic is not desirable for a rib-knit, close fitting top, using cotton in an allover rib pattern does create the desired, casual loose fit of the Ashby Tee. There is no “wrong” yarn, only a “wrong” project choice.
