Berroco’s Quinoa yarn is cotton, with a hint of nylon. It has a wonderfully seedy texture that is enhanced by the use of a Slipped St/Rev Stk pattern. This tee was designed for easy summer wear.
It is knit bottom-up in the round. After separating and working the sleeves, the shoulders are seamed using three-needle BO. The neck and sleeve trim are picked up and knitted in the round. Take the time to knit a swatch and wet-block it! I tend to be a tight knitter, so you may need to go down in needle size.
