Rift* cracks open all your assumptions about what a “basic tee” pattern should be. This lightweight, bottom-up knit includes instructions for two necklines, optional bust darts, short or long sleeves, and a custom fit bicep. The design features a slightly cropped body and a split high-low hem in twisted rib, giving it enough detailing to be interesting while maintaining a timeless simplicity.

(40, 44, 48) [52, 56, 60] {64, 68, 72} inches

(102, 112, 122) [132, 142, 152] {163, 173, 183} cm

To choose your size, measure the circumference around the fullest part of your bust, then add 6-12” (depending on how much ease you want) and choose the closest size.

A note about ease: This tee is designed to be worn with 6-12” of ease; however, to get the fit represented in the pattern sizes, folks at the smaller end of the size range may prefer less ease (6-9”) and folks at the higher end may prefer more ease (9-12”).

* Designer's description and sizing details.

About the yarn: The combination of extrafine merino, cashmere, camel, and mulberry silk provides the most delicious hand. The unique mill construction provides the strength. Ultimately, Caravan is a yarn that boasts the ability to be sweet and strong without compromise.

Sample Shown: Size 52" (which includes 10" of ease) plus 3" longer than design called for. Color is our NEW "Numa," in Crave Yarn Caravan.
