The V-Back Tee by Jamie Hoffman

Karen took knit the "V-Back Tee" with one skein each of Emma's Pretty Pima in the color family "Singing in the Rain".  The three skeins have enough yardage to create up to a finished bust measurement of 47 inches, intended to fit with a positive ease of 0-3 inches (0-7.6 cm). Additional yardage is required to knit a larger size.

The V-back Tee is a playfully rebellious reversal of the popular v-neck. With a top-down construction this tee features back v-shaping that begins at the start of the ribbed neckband and continues all the way down to the hem. The v-shaping is created by a series of paired increases that surrounds a graceful spine, and side decreases offset the widening fabric. 

The pattern is written to accommodate five, four or three colors (as shown in our version). There are multiple options, and what’s more-the tee is reversible! Karen created her fade by knitting with the lightest blue until she was almost out of that color, then transitioning to the next darker color, and then using the darkest shade for the bottom.  Fade your colors any way you like!!

Finished bust circumference: 31 (35, 39, 43, 47) (51, 55, 60, 63) in / 78.5 (89, 99, 109, 119) (129.5, 140, 152, 160) cm

Short-sleeve yardage requirements: 700 (840, 990, 1150, 1350) (1550 ,1780, 2000, 2225) total yards / 640 (768, 905, 1052, 1234) (1417, 1628, 1830, 2035) meters

Breeze Racerback by Jessie Maed Designs

Here is a breezy summer top that’s elegant in its simplicity and perfect for anyone looking for a quick meditative knit. The "Breeze Racerback" by Jessie Maed Designs is knit up at a loose gauge with fingering weight yarn. 

Knit with a US 7 (4.5mm) needle, we started with one shade, moved to a second shade halfway through the body portion, and then used a third shade when binding off for your straps. 

Three skeins will make all sizes up to size 5XL. We love that Jessie Maed's designs are so size inclusive and work for a wide range of body types.
