This month we are featuring the Linum Tee, by Bristol Ivy. Those customers that are joining us on Sea Purls 2016 have already gotten the chance to make the tee, and had a great experience with it so we decided to extend the fun to everyone! This simple summer tee is worked in the round in the basic stockinette stitch until you get to the top. Then you use the fisherman’s rib to create the small lacey pattern at the top. The tee can is made with a linen yarn, and most of us used Juniper Moon’s Zooey. Come in soon to choose your color and to get the pattern so that you too can join in on the fun!linum tee backlinum tee front
