(6) Name: 'Knitting : Otherside

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cast on, k, p, bind off, mattress stitch seaming

Pattern Description:

A boxy and airy sleeveless summer top, Otherside is knitted up quickly at a loose gauge. The stripes add just the right amount of interest to this shirt, making it a perfectly wearable addition to your everyday wardrobe.

Otherside is worked flat in one piece, starting at the front hem. Stitches are bound off in the middle of the row for the neckline and casted on again in the next row. Then the back is worked top-down.

The Shibui Linen yarn is amazingly breezy and crisp and is just the perfect choice for knitting up a modern summer top like Otherside. The linen also won(tm)t curl in stockinette stitch after wet-blocking. If you like to work this tee in another blend, work both hems in ribbing or seed stitch to prevent the fabric from curling.

Yardage requirements:
main color: 482 (515, 541, 574, 602, 629, 686, 719, 748, 777, 810) yds
