Linnutee - PDF knitting pattern
Linnutee (Estonian for Milky Way, however the direct translation would be A Birds Path) is a cute tee specially designed for gradient yarn cakes or mini skein sets – although it will look great in any yarn! The shirt is knitted top down with round yoke, ballerina neck, with no short row shaping to keep the gradient colours to flow evenly.
The sample size 4, worn on 106 cm / 42” bust with 2.5 cm / 1” positive ease.
The Main Colour can be gradient, speckled, solid or slightly variegated, as long there is good contrast with the Contrasting Colour.
The yarns used for the sample:
• MC Mondial Primavera, blue-purple, 150g
• CC Drops Safran, petrol, 100 g
The mosaic pattern is charted.
The pattern has been tech edited and test knitted.
