Year Round - oversized summer tee shirt and sweater knitting pattern
“Year Round” has two patterns in one! - a women's oversized t-shirt and batwing sweater. I have worn the t-shirt with a vest top on hotter days and with a long-sleeved shirt on cooler days. It makes a great extra layer! This is a fun, quick make using odd needles, i.e. one 8mm needle and one 20mm needle, to create a drop stitch effect. Once you get used to the two different sized needles, this is an easy make. Sizes available are: 34/36/38/40 inch or 86/91/97/102 cm Gauge is not terribly important as it is an oversized garment and the open work creates a stretch, however, the tension is 10cm X 10cm = 9sts X 10rows. I have knit this pattern using RICO Design Fashion Summer Denim. You could also use RICO Design Fashion Summer or RICO Design Fashion Summer Print. Depending on the size and style chosen this pattern will take between 7 and 11 X 50g balls of RICO Design Fashion Summer Denim.
