One Way Tee

When I saw the One Way tee on the cover of Interweave Knits, I knew I wanted to try it. I’d never knit lace before, and this is the perfect blouse to wear over a long-sleeve t-shirt in the depths of a Phoenician winter.

Logically, I finished this project in June. It took about a month to knit in Madeline Tosh Shire.

Notes:

  1. Madeline Tosh yarn is gorgeous, but doesn’t come in dye lots. The next time I use this yarn, I’ll buy it all at once to ensure the color scheme is close.
  2. Saddle shoulders with lace are a pain. So is knitting a sweater in pieces. I prefer knitting bottom to top, in the round. If I made this, or one like this, in the future, I’ll do the math to knit the body in one piece.
  3. Lace takes a lot of precision. This is not a project I could do while watching Netflix.

    Even simple lace makes me crazy! Good for you for getting this done. I hardly ever knit now, but I’d all but given up on trying to knit things for me to wear – it’s just SO hard to get the fit right!

  2. This looks great! I knit saddle shoulders for the first time a couple of years ago and loved the result. It was a top-town sweater, so the sleeves and body were all knit in the round. Like you, I am not a fan of seaming. 🙂

  3. It’s so pretty!

  4. Gorgeous! You did a beautiful job!

    When I would with yarns dyed like Mad Tosh or Malabrigo, I alternate 2 different skeins to spread out the differentness. Unfortunately I didn’t learn this until after I made your Saroyan.

  5. You did a great job!!
