Rift cracks open all your assumptions about what a “basic tee” pattern should be. It is incredibly versatile and as shown in our modeled images, is an excellent to wear on it's own or as a layering piece. 


  • YARN: Caravan by Crave Yarn (354 yds/100g; light sport; 70% Superwash Extrafine Merino, 10% Mulberry Silk, 10% Camel, 10% Cashmere)
    • (2, 2, 2) [2, 3, 3] {3, 3, 3} skeins in the chosen color.
  • Option to add 1 extra skein for additional length; we recommend this for sizes 52" and up if you intend to knit your rift longer than the design specifies. And remember, our sample is shown 3" longer, so if that is what you are aiming for, play it safe and grab an extra skein. 

  • Optional Pattern Add-on: Digital copy (via Ravelry); provide your Ravelry username or email address to receive your pattern.

Pattern Details

Sample shown in Numa, and in size 52" (which includes 10" of ease) plus 3" longer than design called for. 


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”).


US 8 (5.0 mm) circular needle, 32" (80 cm) for the body. If you would like to purchase needles for your project, you can find our offerings HERE
