It's all about Stripes!!!  The pattern is on RAVELRY

I’m totally into stripes at the moment.  They are so cheerful and I find them hard to resist. That being said I think this would look great as a solid top as well.  This top/poncho is knit in two pieces bottom up but sewn together so you wear it side to side.  It’s easy to knit and, has a wonderful drape and looks great on all body types.

New Tee Shirt Design Swatch

Final Swatch for my New Tee Shirt / Boxy Top Design,  CoBaSi (Co-Cotton, Ba-bamboo,

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.!
