When I was contacted by Alana of Never Not Knitting to do a test knit for her, I jumped at the opportunity. I have a few of her patterns in my library and have even knit a couple of her lovely designs. She is a fantastic designer and I knew that she would put out a great pattern that would be fun to knit.
The Spring Garden Tee in adult sizes
This is the grown-up version of her previously published pattern for girls and features some changes such as waist shaping and a scooped neckline. The yarn that she sent me for this test knit was Be Sweet Bamboo which is such a lovely yarn :: blocks beautifully and is so cool to the touch – literally! The finished Tee has a lovely drape to it and is perfect for summer wearin’.
Pattern: Spring Garden Tee by Alana Dakos
Yarn: Be Sweet Bamboo in “Meadow”
Needles: Size US 5/3.75 mm and US 6/4 mm
♥ Love, Love, Love this pattern! There’s a KAL for this design on the NeverNotKnitting Ravelry Group.
The fun didn’t end with the knitting. I got to play with picture-taking too 🙂 Pictures were taken by Le Hubster at Burnaby Mountain which is a great place to enjoy the panoramic views of downtown Vancouver and the North Shore.
Love the rustic Totem Poles (I think that’s what they are)
Thanks Preeti!!! Now I want one……..
It just so happens I recently bought two skirts like the one you’re wearing and have no tops to wear with it!!!
Love the green it looks perfect on you. Might I also add its crazy how much I can see your daughter like you in that first picture. I never noticed before now.
I love those bust darts! They’re almost design elements, huh?
Great knitting – Alana could not have asked for a better test knitter.
How many skeins again?
