REVERIES is a wonderfully light and soft summer tee with a marvellous drape. Made from pure silk, it is a timeless and elegant garment that is easy to wear and layer.

The cable and eyelet details at the neckline and hem of the body and sleeves add that certain something to this easy-to-work Stockinette project.

REVERIES is worked seamlessly from the top down. You first cast on stitches for the neckband and shape the neckline with short rows. Then you work a circular yoke, split forbody and sleeves and cast on a few extra stitches at the underarm for a perfect fit. The body and the sleeves are then worked in the round. 

I hope you will enjoy making REVERIES just as much as I did! Happy knitting!

  2. You need to get gauge. Working the pattern at a different gauge is not possible.
  3. You do not make changes to the pattern without talking to me first.

  5. On July 15th 2024 you have
    • knit the complete tee, washed and blocked it
    • created a Ravelry project page for it that is connected to the pattern (use the pre-release code TEST-HHK-9EGADF to establish the connection)
    • added at least 2 good qualitiy pictures of the worn tee taken outside during daylight to your Ravelry project
    • filled out the feedback form here on yarnpond

OPTIONAL

It would be wonderful if you could share as many pictures as you feel comfortable with on Instagram. Both progress pictures and finished object pictures are welcome. As the release of the Reveries Tee will be in summer, it would be very much appreciated if you'd share pictures then, too. But it is completely optional.
