Sweater for ME

Yarn: Adrienne Vittadini Luisa
Color: Turquoise
Clothing: Set in sleeve tee for the summer
Yarn makeup: Viscose (85%) and nylon (15%)
Size: Large :(

Pattern Inspiration: The Late Great Elizabeth Zimmermann

Needle size: 7 (29″ circulars)

I want a tee that is not too short, but not tunic length. I don’t like sleeveless tops or low necks. I like raglans and circular yokes, but have gotten bored of making them. I now want to knit a proper set in sleeve tee. Something with no ease or a bit of positive ease that can be worn all the time. Not lacy, since I do not want to have to wear a tank top underneath it to avoid flashing people.

Yarn label gauge: 4.5 st to 1 in on size 7 needles

Never mind Ms. Zimmermann.

Inspiration: Barbara Walker, Knitting from the Top, p. 81. Top down seamless set in sleeve sweater

I can’t do it. I’m tired of math. Sometimes you just want to be told what to do so you can start knitting. The planning that EZ and BW do take DAYS and MATH and MEASUREMENT. Right now UGH to that.

Inspiration: Ann Budd, Top Down Sweaters, p.130

Size: 38

My gauge on size 7 needles: 4 st to 1 in. It’s still see through.

Back to the drawing board.


So... whaddya think?
