Make it YOUR WAY! Weekend Tee Revisited

Don't be a slave to knitting patterns!  Use your skills and techniques to make your projects your own.

Our popular Weekend Tee pattern was first knit in a ribbon yarn.  Originally named "make-it-in-a-weekend-tee", it was knit in plain stockinette, with rolled edges and quick crochet trim.  Fast techniques to get it done quickly.

 

 

 

 

 

Take a look at the revised version.  It is knit in a dress yarn with lots of "designer" details to dress it up.

One feature is side slits. You can add these to any sweater for a special touch.

Not only did we re-knit the sweater, we've updated the patttern to make construction even easier, AND to give you even more design options.

What about a different stitch pattern for the center front yoke? Hmmmmm .... I need to knit another.... so many ideas!  so little time!!!

The neckline is so very attractive. I will need to make a longer sleeve to cover 'too heavy', very long arms.

It looks lovely. I too would need longer sleeves, maybe elbow length as I have really skinny arms. Perfect for a semi casual or smart evening out.

Lovely details. A big decorative button or pin on the 'lapel' would add interest. Count me in for the long sleeves, too!
