Have you been curious about baby alpaca, and want an easy project to introduce you to the fiber? Shay Johnson's As If Tee is a quick knit with an easy fit! We're knitting the As If Tee with AMORES Tela (Aran weight) and Nube (lace weight) yarn to create a breezy top that can be easily customized to your desired length and preferences.
This pattern is for the advanced beginner! You'll just need the following skills: Casting on/off, stockinette stitch, picking up stitches, 2x2 Rib stitch and mattress stitch (invisible seam stitch).
Because we *love yarn* and love sharing it, we've brought you this special hand-dyed yarn from Santa Fe. AMORES specializes in luxury fibers. The universal variable for all her yarns is softness. These are custom yarn bases that are difficult to put down, yarns that want to be caressed—that will caress you in return when transformed into hand knit or crocheted pieces.
