. . . doble . . .

Dreaming of a summer breeze … in the sun on the beach …

Doble is a double layered tee. Started this one about a year ago. But when I finished it summer had already gone.

It is worked top down and seamlessly in the round with a delicate lace edge on the sleeves and bottom of the top layer … or the bottom layer …
… because it is completely reversible. The two layers are only attached at the neck band.

detail-If you use linen – as in the sample – the inside layer shines through and gives a special effect. You can also make it in cotton or wool using a lighter yarn – lace weight for example – for the top layer to get the shine-through effect.

. . . appelblauwzeegroen . . .

The word ‘appelblauwzeegroen’ to designate the color of the sample (between blue and green) is only used in Dutch speaking Belgium.

Learned that from wiktionary

appelblauw-

Beautiful colors from Wollmeise in Pure.

And this is what it became …

appelblauw 3+

Apple blue, sea green is a short sleeved henley pullover with an asymmetrical high low, faux-pleated peplum worked top down seamlessly in the round. There are different options included to place the asymmetrical peplum: a peplum starting high on the left side and low on the right side as the sample, or high at the front and low at the back or vice versa.

appelblauw 4+-

The shoulder and sleeves construction is an improved version of the one I use in many of my pullovers and cardis (inspired by the contiguous method of Susie Myers). I found a way to work them without breaking any yarn.

Best worn with no ease or a little positive ease. Choose the size that is equal or a bit larger than your high bust measurement (under the armpit). If you should want more ease or if you are large busted, it is best to start with the numbers of the size closest to yours and add more increases for the body and sleeves.
