New Tee Shirt Design Swatch

Final Swatch for my New Tee Shirt / Boxy Top Design,  CoBaSi (Co-Cotton, Ba-bamboo, 
Si-silk) by HiKoo.  Love knitting with this yarn.  I was originally going assemble it bottom up but changed my mind and am assembling it side to side.

Summer Knitting

 Summer is on the way here in Southern California and I was in the mood to design another Tee Top. This is a shape I have done before and it’s quite popular with the customers at The Little Knittery in Atwater Village, where I work. It’s an easy project yet the stripe stitch pattern gives it a little something special. It is Tech Edited and has a Schematic.!

SIZE: XS (S, M, L, XL)
TO FIT BUST: X Small 28-30” (Small, 32-34”; Medium, 36-38”; Large 40-42”; XL 44-46”
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 16 (18, 20, 22, 24)” wide at bust, 19.5 (20, 20.5, 21, 21.5)” long

YARN: Berroco Modern Cotton; 60% Prima Cotton, 40% Modal Rayon. 209 yds, 191m, 3.5 oz, 100g. 3 (3, 3, 3, 4) balls of color 1601 Sandy Point (A), 1 ball of color 1603 Piper (B)

You can buy the pattern on  Ravelry

Lousia Top #2

I originally knit this design using a yarn that unfortunately has been discontinued.
Kat Coyle, who owns The Little Knittery in Atwater Village, CA, asked me to design a version using Juniper Moon Farm’s Zooey Aran yarn. I made the stripes wider starting with the dark color stripe and ending with the light color stripe, so each sleeve edge is a different color stripe. It’s knit side-to-side which give this top a wonderful drape.

This Pattern is listed on Ravelrycrafsty

Invisible Weaving

I do sweater repair and finishing for THE LITTLE KNITTERY in Atwater village where I work every weekend. It just happened, since we have a considerable amount of moth eating here in Southern California and we were getting a lot of requests. Turns out I really like doing this kind of work. 
Here is a tip--store your wool items in an air tight container! and you won't need my service.
