Summer Tegna in Silk and LinenShibui
Here in Texas we have two seasons: hot and humid, and comfortable. Our take on Caitlin Hunter's beautiful Tegna tee makes a top that is ideal for those long hot summer days. Our sample is shown in the color "Imperial"
Shibui Knits Twig yarn is a unique combination of linen, recycled silk, and wool that knits into a soft and cool fabric with the kind of drape that is simply effortless.
(for 5-10 inches of positive ease around the bust):
XS-M (35.5"-43.25" finished bust): 5 skeins
L (48.25" finished bust): 6 skeins
XL-3XL (53.5"-63.5"): 7 skeins
Many knitters have found that they wanted to make the sleeves wider than specified in the pattern, which might require an additional skein.
Kit also includes a professionally printed copy of the pattern that has a download code that allows you to download it from Ravelry. If you do not need the pattern, please use the code "NoTegnaPattern" at checkout to receive a $7 discount on the kit.
