This Garter Stitch Summer Sweater is a really interesting summer knitting project. Shown here in variegated yarn, this top would also look nice in a solid color, if the stripey look isn't your style. And while this isn't quite a full sweater knitting pattern, it does provide a tutorial on exactly how to knit this sweater to your measurements. Additionally, detailed tips and instructions are included for each part of this knitted sweater pattern, so you'll be able to follow along easily. Plus, this top is knitted mostly in garter stitch, so it's not too hard.

Perhaps the skill level advanced could be put in use here. I love this pattern but I do not think I have the skill set to pull it off yet. Thanks for the detailed pattern instructions provided and all the options too.

Iket, thanks for the information. I really this pattern but I don't think I can "do the math". I will continue to look for a "simple tee shirt" pattern as I do like this look. Maybe need a little more lenght.

If you're going to do much knitting, I think you'll find it worthwhile to learn to "do the math." Once you have knitted a swatch of around 20 stitches by 15 rows, use your tape measure or ruler width wise in the center of the swatch and count the stitches in an inch. Don't count the edge stitches because they tend to stretch or otherwise contort When you know how many stitches are in an inch then you know how many stitches it takes to make however many inches you need. Other than that, you just have to measure yourself and write down the number of stitches you need. It's not as hard as it sounds, really.

Thanks for that information.

This is a nice, simple tee shirt, but unlike most patterns, this one requires you to do some math. It doesnt give a breakdown of sizes and cast on amounts. You need to figure out your measurements and gauge, and then calculate your stitches from there. The designer does include links to help you figure it all out though.
