About the design: Rift* cracks open all your assumptions about what a “basic tee” pattern should be. This lightweight, bottom-up knit includes instructions for two necklines, optional bust darts, short or long sleeves, and a custom fit bicep. The design features a slightly cropped body and a split high-low hem in twisted rib, giving it enough detailing to be interesting while maintaining a timeless simplicity.
Designer's Bio: As a designer, I am deeply invested in creating patterns that are inclusive and accessible for a wide range of body types and abilities. I believe that creating clothes to fit your own body is a practice of self-care, and for those in the most marginalized bodies, it can be an act of resistance. Whatever their circumstances, I hope my designs empower makers to realize they (and their bodies) are worthy of comfortable, well-fitted clothes that reflect their personal style.
About the yarn:
The combination of extrafine merino, cashmere, camel, and mulberry silk provides the most delicious hand. The unique mill construction provides the strength. Ultimately, Caravan is a yarn that boasts the ability to be sweet and strong without compromise.
