Free Pattern Friday – Zephyr Tank

It’s Free Pattern Friday!

Today, the Zephyr Tank in Flax and Flax Lace.

I.  Love.  This.  Because I don’t know what it’s like where you are, but here, it’s starting to get hot.  All I’m saying is, this cat has the right idea.

Close the door, the heat’s getting in.

But I still want to knit!  Enter Flax and Flax Lace.

Flax Lace. Cool and fine. Just like you.

100% linen in DK and laceweight.  I feel cooler just looking at it.

The Zephyr Tank has a body knit in Flax.  It flares out at the hips for a nice silhouette.  The Flax Lace edging at the hem is knitted on the same size needle as the body, giving it a nice drape.

Knit it in pieces, then whipstitch the contrasting edging to the wrong side of the hem afterward.  Lovely.

The pattern runs from bust size 35¼ to 51¼.  It’s written, and contains a schematic for assembly.

We hope you have a fantastic weekend, and that you enjoy this free pattern.

Happy knitting!

 

Free Pattern Friday – Bienne Tee

It’s Free Pattern Friday!

Today, the Bienne Tee in Flax Lace.

This tee is named after the town of Bienne, Switzerland.  Both German and French are spoken there, and with its old Gothic architecture and modern high rises, the city is a beautiful blend of rustic and sophisticated.

Likewise, the Bienne Tee is a lovely mix of cables and lace in sturdy Flax Lace 100% linen, a classic plant fiber that softens with every wash.

It’s easy to see how good this would look over a tank or cami, with contrasting color capris  or jewelry.  Although it’s a classic in color 101 Taupe as pictured, I’m wondering how something more colorful might work.   There are a lot of lovely tones to choose from.

Happy knitting!
