Knit any “Tee Shirt” style top this summer (June 1 through August 31) and join us at W7W for tasty treats and door prizes at a special Tea Party Show and Tell on Sunday, September 3 from 2 to 4pm. Follow along in the West 7th Woolies Facebook Group.
Pop by the shop and browse through our collection of hand knit Summer tops. Here are some Ravelry links to some of our favorite fingering weight patterns: Zaftig Tee by Sheila Toy Stromberg, Summer Sorell by Wool & Pine, Knot Front Tee by Kerri Blumer, and Koi Tee by Ginko B. Our house dyed fingering weight yarns: Hunter’s Sock and Smol Boi are great Superwash Merino choices. Malabrigo’s Susurro and Juniper Moon’s Summer Solstice are great linen and linen blend options.
If you have a little less time on your hands and you’d like a quicker knit – try one of these DK weight tees: My Boy Lollipop by Nancy Ricci, Boat Neck Tee Top by Betsabeh Kazemi, or Summer Tea Shirt by Vera Sanon.
Try a cotton or cotton blend DK yarn for a lighter feel like Madeline Tosh’s Wool + Cotton, Cascade Ultra Pima or Berroco Modern Cotton.
You can knit ANY t-shirt pattern you like for the Summer T Party KAL – but there’s a very special summer tee that will be released on June 30th. Marie Greene has chosen the Lemon Spritz Tee for her 7th Annual 4 Day KAL this year. Lemon Spritz is a celebration of sunshine and summer days. With easy, comfortable raglan shaping, lacy details in the lower body, and delightful “lemon leaf” ties on the short sleeves, you’ll have a gorgeous quick-knit top just in time for warm weather.
Lemon Spritz is a top down raglan knit in sport or light DK weight yarn with a rolled neck line, lace details in the body and short sleeves framed with a playful garter edge detail.
