Feature Pattern of the Week - Linen Tee Love

Caprock Tee by Yamagara,
Woolfolk Strå, color S11

There is nothing like a beautiful linen blend knit tee for warm weather months. The Caprock Tee by Yamagara is knit top down, in the round with a stunning textured yoke that is very flattering to wear.

The yoke is shaped using German Short Rows & features a seed stitch detail, as well as the attractive smocking stitch. Smocking stitch has an appearance similar to a cable, but is quite easy to achieve without a cable needle! The body is knit in smooth stockinette that shows off the gorgeous character of the yarn & makes the piece easy to lengthen if desired.

Now about this lovely yarn....the tee is knit is Woolfolk Strå (Danish for Straw). The DK weight yarn has magnificent drape & is a luxe blend of linen & Ultimate Merino wool with a lush palette of colorways. The chain construction of the yarn helps garments hold their shape beautifully & wear well over time.
