Sydney Tee

By: Alexis Di Gregorio from knotions.com

Sydney Tee

"Fun, modern, and flattering, this tee works wonderfully on those late summer days. The color block scheme allows for an extra level of personalization, as well as dividing the top along figure flattering lines. The delicate twisting texture along the ribcage adds flattering visual interest with an easy-to-remember pattern. This top will be as fun to create as it will be wear. Piece is worked top down over the shoulders using a provisional CO. Both sides of the neckline are worked at the same time using two balls of yarn, then joined together to work in the round. Sleeves are picked up with the sleeve caps being shaped using short-rows, then worked in the round."
