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.

I design to surprise — from matching cheeky stripes with elegant lace, to choosing unexpected color combinations. I love to collaborate with other creative types around the world, and my patterns have been published by yarn companies and knitting magazines large and small. I live with my husband and three children in Bonn, Germany, where I find inspiration in the landscape, history, and culture.
