Fancy a summer tee in cotton ? Or cotton / linen blends ?
Here is one: A Mazing Tee, a short sleeved summer tee worked in two (or more) colors. First front and back panels are knit top-down featuring a slip stitch mosaic pattern.
Only one color is worked per row. The top of both panels with the neckline and shoulder shaping is written out but the basic mosaic pattern is charted only.
The front and back panel are finished with a ‘no finish look’ bind off method, the same I used before in manneken and kazual. I really, really like that bind off.
This is the first one I made using three different yarns that had been in my stash for ages.
But then, I found that it would be better to change the mosaic pattern a little. And it might be a good idea to add some short rows at the shoulders and sleeve inset for a better and more natural fit.
So I made a second one. Also from stash yarn.
I used two colors for this one.
You can see the short rows shaping the sleeve / shoulder. But first the small saddle shoulder is worked sidewise joining back and front at the same time.
Stitches are picked up & knit along both panels to work the sides. Here you can easily adapt the size by working more or less rows.
The sleeves are worked in the round and bound off in the same manner.

Well, I don’t think these will be the last ones using mosaic patterns. It is so easy and fun…
