Anker's Summer Shirt, Petite Knit. Knitting Pattern
This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern
Knit in a DK/8ply cotton or linen yarn, Anker's Summer Shirt is a simple classic with a twist. The detailing around the yoke elevates this timeless wardrobe addition.
Anker’s Summer Shirt is worked from the top down. The yoke is worked in sections of rib with increases in the round, followed by classic raglan increases when the stockinette stitch section begins. The sleeves are worked at the end, either on double-pointed needles or on circular needles using the Magic Loop technique. Anker’s Summer Shirt has no finishing other than weaving in ends.
A great match with Tacama Organic Cotton Alpaca
