Spicy Fitted V-Neck Tee

Pattern Notes

Pattern Source: Fitted Knits – Stephanie Japel

 

Yarn: Rowan All Season Cotton in Safari. Approx. 3.5 balls

 

Needles: #10 1/2 US Knit Pick Options Circular 24″

 

Gauge: 4 stitches per inch

 

Modifications: Smaller gauge because the pattern starts at a size 34″ bust. I added more length in the waist and decided to forgo the details on the sleeves and shortened them.

 

Thoughts: Even though it was knit on huge needles and with aran weight yarn I was surprised at how quickly I was able to finish this. It’s also extremely light and perfect for summer. Hubby thinks I should definitely knit another one and I love it so much I just may!

    This looks great! It really fits you perfectly. I didn’t even realize the All Seasons was so bulky. Somehow, though, it doesn’t look bulky on you.

    The All Seasons is aran weight. Sorry! It’s very light.

    Fantastic job! Any tips on speedy knitting? Do you knit continental? I just LOVE instant gratification!

  13. Maryse Says:

    Nice blog! You make good knitting choices! I’ll make sure to come back often…

  14. Elizabeth Says:

    Kaitlin – Yes I knit continental. I stay up way too late, knitting into the wee hours of the morning. I need to stop doing that when school starts up again, but regardless of my knitting habits, this particular project went very quickly because the needles are large and the yarn is thick. Even I was surprised it only took three days!

    Thanks Maryse!
