This tee is written in kid’s sizes 6 – 16, but is very easily customizable! It’s cropped to wear with high-waisted jeans, but just add some rows (before starting the neckline) to make it longer.

Let’s talk yarn! I used two different yarns held together. The first is Capra Dk from WeCrochet held with Aloft Kid Mohair. The mohair gives a little bit of a halo effect but doesn’t add to to overall weight of the sweater. It’s a laceweight yarn and can easily be omitted. It won’t change the outcome of the top. Capra DK is a merino wool/cashmere blend and is just oh-so-soft and luxurious to work with. But any DK weight yarn (wool, acrylic, cotton) would work great for this pattern.

  1. Pattern instructions are confusing.

    evenly across working 1 sc in the end of each row ((47, 53, 59)(65, 71, 77) sc)

    Change to Color B to begin stripe pattern

    Row 2 -(23, 24, 25) (26, 27, 28): ch 1, turn, esc in each stitch across ((47, 53, 59)(65, 71, 77) esc)
    So if row 2 has 23 stitches for size 6, how can you esc in each stitch across 47? For size 6 if you have 23 stitches?
    And each next step you show everything in parenthesis for all sizes but steps arent clear?
    Not sure if im explaining my self clearly

    1. Hi, the 23 is the row number. The parenthesis at the beginning in bold are the row numbers and then at the end is the stitch count
