Detailed Description

Celebrate summer with a comfy tee in bold color stripes. It is knit in the round from the bottom up to the armholes and then the front and back are worked flat to the top. The sleeves are worked at the same time as the shoulders. A simple garter stitch edging is worked on the sleeves and neck. The finished chest measurements are 38.5 (42.5, 46.5, 50.5, 54.5, 58.5, 62.5, 66.5, 70.5)" with finished lengths of 20.25 (20.75, 21.25, 21.25, 21.75, 21.75, 22.25, 22.75, 23.25)". The designer recommends a fit with 2-4" of positive ease. This sweater can be machine washed on delicate in cold water and dried flat. Berroco has rated this Amy Christoffers design as requiring intermediate skill level.

Sorbet is knit using Meraki, one of Berroco's summer yarns. It is a blend of 71% cotton, 24% hemp, and 5% polyester, which makes it comfortable for even the hottest days. The cotton and hemp take the dye slightly differently, plus the yarn is thick and thin, so the finished fabric has a wonderful texture with subtle color variations. It is knit at 5 stitches per inch in this project.
