This wonderful knit tee by Tressa Weidenaar is worked top-down, in the round, with a simple colorwork motif inspired by the mountains of her Navajo homeland. Knit on larger needles with worsted-weight yarn (and short sleeves!), this pattern knits up in no time, and is a perfect airy gauge for spring, summer and fall!
Our kits pair this wonderful pattern with O-Wool Local, a worsted weight yarn that is 50% organic merino and 50% alpaca, sourced from small farms in PA and NJ. It produces lofty, soft fabrics that are both sturdy and comfortable to wear, and each colorway is carefully dyed and overdyed in glowing colors with depth and nuance.

Sample shown is knit in size E, with additional inches in the body for a longer hem.
The yarn provided in the kit is sufficient for all sizes, without modifications, and an extra skein for sizes A-D, which allows you extra yardage for adding length to hem, sleeves, difference of gauge etc. Sizes E-H also include extra yardage, but in lesser amounts. Please review the pattern yardage requirements and, if desired, order an extra skein of your color, here.
