1 // Puff Tee by Knitting for Olive

A classic stockinette stitch tee with important shoulder detailing that will elevate your style.

The Puff Tee - light and soft, and worked with 2 strands of silk mohair together - is a quick knit with an interesting simultaneous saddle shoulder construction.

Top down and seamless, the Puff Tee begins with a double ribbed neckband, and continues with a combination of short row shaping and increases that raise the back neckline and create the saddle shoulder seams.

The fullness of the cap sleeves completes the saddle shoulders, and the shaping continues to create the armholes.

The short puff sleeves and the body are finished with deep ribbed edges that gather the full drape of the tee, and balance the overall silhouette.

The Puff Tee is size inclusive, and is designed to be worn with a 6-10 cm 2.5-4“ positive ease (bigger than you).

Gauge: 20 stitches and 26 rows = 10 cm in Stockinette stitch
