finished object: knitted hi-lo tee
This was a total therapy project. Two huge rectangles sewn together. I used 3 skeins of yarn that I got a thrift store with no band/labels. They were $1.85 each. The fiber is synthetic and summery. It's soft sort of like bamboo and has little iridescent sequins woven in.
Lattice Tee I made a few years ago. As it was, I only had a couple feet of yarn scraps left at the end, so I knit two separate ones to control the length more carefully.
The yarn is somewhere between worsted and bulky. I wanted it to be gauzy and somewhat sheer, so I knit it on size 17 needles - 56 stitches or about 26" wide. The first 5 rows and the 5 stitches on either side seam are in seed stitch, so they don't curl & the rest is stockinette.
The front piece is 25" long and the back 29". That was all the yarn I had. I really wanted a hi-low hem. I stitched 8 inches on either side of the shoulder seam, leaving 10" on each side for the neck hole.
I measured down 9" from the shoulder for the arm holes and then stitched the front and back together at the side seam until the last 4" of the front piece, for a split side seam.
