High Trestle Tee

Smocked-bodice tunic with boxy shaping – excellent for layering!



This pattern calls for 740-1300 yards EACH of Shibui Twig and Shibui Pebble, knit with two strands together as one (total of 1480-2600 yards if using two strands). — or– 740-1300 yards of light DK yarn to be knit with single strand. For best drape and results, plant fiber with some silk or linen is preferable.

The High Trestle Tee is tunic-style tee with a wide scoop neck. In the recommended yarn it is a medium weight tee with excellent drape that is perfect for in-between seasons. It wears beautifully alone but can be layered for cooler weather. Top-down, seamless, knit in one piece. See my video tutorial for working the trestle stitch!

Actual bust measurements are: 34½ (38, 42, 47, 50, 54)”

If you are substituting yarn, results may vary. Please check gauge and block your swatch for a better idea of how fiber will handle post-blocking.
