DESCRIPTIONRift 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.

Rift was designed for Little Fox Yarn’s Linea (100g/320yds per skein), a soft, slightly nubby yarn made from 50% non-superwash merino, 25% cotton, 15% linen, and 10% silk. This yarn grows significantly in the blocking process and stretches a little with wear.
