PDF knitting pattern for instant download

This raglan tee top is worked in a combination of stockinette stitch (the sides) and herringbone lace pattern (front and back). It is worked in the round from the bottom up - every second round of the herringbone pattern is knit stitches only, which makes the pattern relatively fast to work. The neckline is shaped with short rows.

There are two variations included in the pattern - one is for a ribbed hem, see the photos of the natural color or the apple green top, the other is for a scalloped hem or essentially a no-hem top that has the vertical herringbone pattern starting from the first round.

The herringbone pattern is fun yet challenging - easy to memorize and work.

The pattern is written in one size only; it is a Small-Medium when worked in the suggested BC Garn Lino yarn. The yarn is 100% Flax Linen, an absolutely gorgeous linen yarn for knits.

You need 4 skeins of the BC Garn, Lino for this top. This yarn runs 164 yards per skein. (150 m)
Gauge when worked on US 4 (3.5 mm) ndl in The Herringbone Pattern, in rows: 25 sts / 32 rows = 4" (10 cm)
