Introducing the Rift Tee

 

✨ RIFT will be released on Ravelry on Friday, July 12. ✨

Rift cracks open all your assumptions about what a “basic tee” pattern should be. This lightweight, bottom-up knit includes instructions for two necklines, optional bust darts, and a custom fit bicep. The design features a slightly cropped body and a split high-low hem in twisted rib, giving it enough detailing to be interesting while maintaining a timeless simplicity.

RIFT TEE

SIZING DETAILS

sizing

Sizes by finished bust circumference in inches/cm:
(40, 44, 48) [52, 56, 60] {64, 68, 72} inches
(102, 112, 122) [132, 142, 152] {163, 173, 183} cm

To choose your size, measure the circumference around the fullest part of your bust, then add 6-12” (depending on how much ease you want) and choose the closest size.

A note about ease: This tee is designed to be worn with 6-12” of ease; however, to get the fit represented in the pattern sizes, folks at the smaller end of the size range may prefer less ease (6-9”) and folks at the higher end may prefer more ease (9-12”).

yarn

Gauge: 16 sts and 20 rows over 4” in blocked stockinette stitch on US8s

This sweater is designed for a sport/dk weight cotton/wool blend. The samples are worked in Little Fox Yarn’s Linea (100g/320yds per skein), a soft, slightly nubby yarn made from 50% non-superwash merino, 25% cotton, 15% linen, and 10% silk. This yarn grows significantly in the blocking process and stretches a little with wear.

Yarn requirements in Linea: (2, 2, 3) [3, 3, 3] {3, 3, 4}
Yarn requirements by yardage: (550, 600, 650) [700, 750, 800] {875, 950, 1025}
Yarn requirements by meter: (500, 550, 595) [640, 685, 730] {800, 975, 940}
