From Tent to Tee

I have the front and back done on Relax, AKA the Giant Pink Tent.

The Zephyr yarn has a lovely drape, so it doesn’t look quite so much like a tent when being worn. (And remember, I went down a size from what was recommended for my bustsize.)

I still have the sleeves to add, but without them, it makes a pretty cute tee. Maybe I’ll make another one and just leave it as a short-sleeved top.

The neckline just has a simple rolled edging. The bottom hem was supposed to have a ribbing. I knit it, but it was way too loose. I should have gone down a couple of needle sizes. Rather than reknit it, though, I decided to just have a rolled hem instead. The top was already long enough, and adding the ribbing would have made it a little longer than I would have liked. So starting from my provisional cast-on, I joined the hem to work in the round and worked one purl round followed by three knit rounds and then bound off.

    The rolled hem looks great with the rolled neck.I also think the color looks great on you, despite your concerns. It will be a great summer top with or without sleeves!

    It definitely doesn’t look like a tent now! 🙂

    It looks super and you are right…it really doesn’t need sleeves…it looks good just the way it is. 🙂

    I say leave the sleeves off – it looks great as is!

    I love the “oversized” look! Elegant, chic, AND comfy all at once. Very nice!

    I like it without the sleeves too – it’d work as a layering piece or just by itself during those changeable spring weather days.
