A spicy riff on the classic tee, Tar is a relaxed-yet-sexy raglan that easily dresses up or down. Perfect for layering or wearing on its own, it's knit seamlessly in the round from the top down and features a hint of waist shaping and 3/4 sleeves. The stylish boat neck, waist, and cuffs are all edged with ribbing. Knit it in Shibui Heichi " a rustic silk tweed " for a luxurious, drapey fabric with a beautiful sheen.

I’m Melanie, and I combine texture and color into wearable modern designs that are both playful and beautiful. 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.
