Description

I’m lucky to live in Oregon Wine Country, where the soil is perfect for grapes. Nekia is a soil type found in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA in the Willamette Valley where I call home. This top-down, seamless tee is inspired by wine tasting weekends in the spring and summer; it’s a quick, soothing knit with easy to follow details. You just might need to knit more than one!

Skill Level: Intermediate (but the neckline video tutorial makes it easy!)

  • Note: Nekia was designed with approximately 2 in/5 cm of positive ease. To calculate the amount of ease for the size you choose, simply compare the stated size (which corresponds to your actual full bust measurement), with the finished measurement for that size in the pattern (at the specified gauge). The difference between these two numbers is the amount of ease in the pattern. You can adjust the amount of ease for your own preference, by choosing a different size.


NOTE:
Nekia is a completely redesigned and updated pattern release with extended sizing. Original pattern released in 2016.
