Pattern Description:

I love mixing knit and crochet. I'll always be a knitter first and crocheter second. But that crochet skill sure comes in handy when you need a quick toy or accessory! Or when you want to add a fun detail to an otherwise straightforward knit tee, which is the case with In a While, Crocodile. I love shoulder detail, and with this design you can add as much or as little as you like. Keep it simple with textured knit stripes, or go big by adding Crocodile Stitch as a finishing touch. Either way, when you are done knitting this tee you will have a fun, easy to wear top you can wear all summer long.

This tee is knit in the round from the bottom up. Sts are then held for the front while the raglan shaping is finished for the back. The front is then completed with tshirt-like neck shaping. Sleeves are then completed and either left with simple textured striping or Crocodile Stitch is added, and seamed in. Sts are picked up for the neckband.
