Summer Tee Day Camp

By the end of this class, you'll go home with YOUR OWN pattern for a boxy, short-sleeved tee, simply constructed out of two rectangles. You will swatch to find your stitch gauge, play with different stitch patterns, and decide how you want your tee to fit. Using the template provided, you'll perform some knitting math/magic to come up with your unique set of stitch counts for your tee and hopefully have time to cast on!

The yarn options here are truly endless... I would encourage the use of a plant-fiber-based, dk weight yarn, but it certainly doesn't need to be! I'm estimating somewhere between 500 - 1000 yards, depending on finished size. We will be calculating a rough estimate with our swatch during class. You can choose a yarn from the following list below (if you're interested in something different, reach out to me and let's chat!):
Zooey by Juniper Moon Farm
Asaginu, Sonata, Kakigori, or Yukata by Noro
Remix, Vivo, Zinnia, Medina or Summer Sesame from Berroco
Replay from Sirdar
Feliz from Manos del Uruguay

Plan to bring needles from a US 6 - 10 (if you don't have all the needles in that range, I'll have some available for swatching). An interchangeable set is invaluable at a time like this!
