  • We all have been waiting for this,, ready to buy yarn after search the stash and wondering what y’all think about the Ergonomics needles from Germany …..Frym

  • Thank you for introducing us to Lone Kjeldsen. She has some wonderful patterns. I have some of your Euroflax Mini-skeins that I might incorporate in a mostly solid version. Love some of your other suggestions as well!

    • I second that! I didn’t know her work at all, she has some really comfy looking sweater patterns, and I love the Green Tee.

  • Love, love, love these tees and also love getting suggestions for pattern/yarn pairs. Thank you!

  • Creative Linen! That’s new! Is it chainette construction? Have my eye on the Linear Top;)

    • Creative Linen is cable plied with a Z twist. Not splitty.

  • Just what the doctor ordered!! Thank you. Now I don’t need to spend hours searching Ravelry. I’d rather be knitting than looking.

  • I love the green tee and have some of your many colors of the euro flax. Will have to try playing with this! Unless someone tries it multicolored before me!

  • Thank you! Already have the Melanie Berg in my favorites, adding two more from this line-up. Hope to get one done before Shakerag!

  • wonderful choices. All of them so interesting

  • Some lovely patterns, but I do wish designers would show their garments while worn – particularly something like Green-Tee, with its unusual construction. None of the projects on Ravelry show it on a “person” either.

    • One of my pet peeves on Ravelry. Put the garment on!! I don’t care what a tee/shawl looks like on a tree, how do I style it and what is the neckline like under the model’s hair ? I’m tired of fun-to-make knits that look pretty but don’t fit my wardrobe.

    • I agree – the garment looks intriguing but without any pics on a real body, I have no idea if it would be flattering. Too bad!

  • Wish some creative designers would come up with the equivalent of darts for a better fit that doesn’t pull up in front.

    • It’s called short rows and the Vogue Knitting Book has the instructions if you cannot find out how elsewhere.

  • I’m a huge fan of Tamy Gore and knit Trelawny. It’s the perfect tee. I just wore it this weekend!

  • Regarding the question of the neckline on something like the Green Tee which may be a little too low and wide for my taste – I heard/read recently on a podcast/ blog that an easy mod to raise it up a bit is to bind off more tightly. Have not tried it and don’t know if it works for plant fibers as well as for wool, for example. Just seems like an easier fix than to unpick a bunch of rows after you’ve gotten to the top and it’s disappointing, so therefore worth a try. Please share if you know this to be wrong. Also the pattern description states that the silhouette has a slight/subtle A-line shape which tends to work for me, so I’m going for it.

    • Bind off more tightly will NOT do the job. Will produce puckering that does not steam out of plant fibers, may in wool. Fill neckline in with more rows of knitting, add an i-cord band, or crochet trim if you want to avoid ripping out.

  • Hmm.. maybe I should have qualified this…The highly influential knitter/blogger who suggested this hack was referring to her specific project with her specific yarn.
    Can’t remember what it was now something like Basic Sweater done with a wool or other natural fiber mix. I guess like most things your own mileage may vary according to specifics. Way back in the past my own experience tightening my bindoff did not go well, but that was with acrylic yarn. Sorry if I’ve misled anyone.
