SUNKISSED SEA is inspired by warm, breezy summer evenings at the beach. I imagine wearing this tee sitting by a small fire watching the sun slowly disappearing into the deep blue-green ocean.
Made from a merino and silk blend yarn, SUNKISSED SEA has a lovely shine and a wonderful luxurious feel to it. The fabric is super soft against the skin and has the lovely texture that is typical for linen stitch.
This pattern includes instructions for both a straight body and a body with subtle waist shaping for you to choose according to your preference.

Please note that these values are only estimates. Changes in yarn or gauge as well as changes of the pattern can result in a different yardage.
29 sts and 56 rounds = 10cm / 4" in Linen stitch after blocking.
5mm needles (or size to obtain gauge with) and 3mm needles
Please note: This needle size is much larger than the needle size I would use for this yarn if I were working Stockinette stitch. You might be tempted you use a smaller needle, but I would advice against that. Linen stitch creates a very dense fabric and if you use a too small needle, the fabric will loose its drape.
A tapestry needle or crochet hook to weave in the ends and 3 stitch markers.
- knit and purl stitches
- working in the round
- working linen stitch
- working short rows
- working increases
Since this tee is worked in Linen Stitch throughout - which is very rhythmic - this pattern is suited for advanced beginners.
