Knit, Purl, Rib (Knit & Purl)
The Easy Tee Knit Kit
Our Big Cotton easy tee is an ideal wardrobe addition during the warmer months. Knitted in our beautifully soft Big Cotton yarn, the tee is so cool and comfortable to wear.
Choose two colours from our dreamy range and knit up this striped tee in no time at all. Suitable for beginners, the tee is knit in two panels from the top down, and shaped for the sleeves. Join the two sides together and you’re ready to go!
Size up if you’d like a slouchier fit, although the sizing is pretty generous. Four sizes fit from a UK size 6-28. If you’d like a cropped top, finish knitting after four or five stripes, or go even longer for a t-shirt dress.
This tee is as perfect with jeans or shorts as it is dungarees or skirt. The cotton yarn means it is soft next to your skin and not too heavy – which is perfect for the summer days, but also cosy enough for cooler evenings.
Presented beautifully gift ready in a eco cotton LAD bag – and don’t forget to add needles if you’ve not already got them at home!
You may want to use circular needles for this pattern, knitting back and forth, as you have a longer length to knit with. You can choose the needle you’d prefer when you order.
