Summer Tee Time Make-along

June 30 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


Zoom meetup times:
Thursdays, June 30 – July 21, 6-7 pm

Hot on the heels of their last make-along, Fancywork Ambassadors Danni and Kecia, are gearing up for a new one: summer tees! What are they knitting you ask? Danni is casting on Audrey Borrego’s Xyris – a simple, yet graceful top featuring a lace motif on the back and simple stockinette across the front. She’ll be knitting Xyris with some Smooshy with Cashmere that she picked up from us way back when. We’re eyeing Neighborhood Fiber Co.’s Organic Rustic Fingering for this one though. Kecia’s summer muse is Caitlin Hunter’s Misurina. This colorwork tee is inspired by a dreamy lake in the Italian Dolomites. Kecia is planning to use our newest yarn, Elemental Affects’ Coastal, for her Misurina.

Other summer tops to inspire your Summer Tee Time knitting include Grassland Tee by Susan Schädler. The pattern is included in Making Stories, Issue 6 and we’ve got a beautiful sample of it on display in the shop for you to see – also knit in Coastal. Okay, okay, so it’s not exactly a SUMMER tee, but Elise is planning a Wool & Pine Spring Sorrel with some really fun DK yarn she scored at our Boss Kitty Pop-Up back on LYS Day. Any DK-weight yarn will work for this. There are endless creative opportunities with the After Beach tee designed by Emilie Luis. Jazz it up with Lang Linello’s long color changes, or keep it simple and extra soft with Brooklyn Tweed’s limited edition, single-source American Merino yarn, Ranch 03.

Hey crocheters, join in the fun! Zig-Zag-Zummer by Nomad Stitches is beyond cute and will work up quickly in any number of our sport-weight yarns. Or consider this Summertime Tee in worsted weight from Toni Lipsey. We’re betting you’ll wear it nearly everyday. Also, could someone just please make this??? Stunning.

Inspired yet? We are! Pick your fav knit or crochet pattern, hop on over to the shop and snatch up the perfect yarn for it. You can register for the Summer Tee Time Make-along right here on the web. That’s how you’ll get the Zoom link. Then log on Thursdays from June 30th through July 21st from 6-7pm for summertime stitching fun. See you there!

As a reminder, Fancywork events support yarn purchased from our shop. Doing so allows us to continue offering these community events for free.
