Quince & Co Petaluma - PDF


Designed by 

Emily Greene

Equal parts elegant and versatile, Emily’s top-down tee is an instant classic for summer knitting. We love the sweet little details of this boxy tee: from its tailored shoulder shaping to its generous neckline. With soothing stockinette throughout, Petaluma makes for the perfect evening knit that results in a go-to summer garment. Pick out your favourite colourway of Sparrow and you’re ready to cast on!

Tee is worked seamlessly from the top down, beginning with the upper back and front, worked flat, and then joined in the round below the armholes. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole and sleeves are worked in the round. The shoulders and sleeve caps are shaped using German short rows. This design features tailored shoulder shaping, in which the shoulder ‘seams’ are shifted towards the back of the body.

Skills Required:

I-cord cast on, backwards loop cast on, picking up stitches, German short rows (links provided); increasing, decreasing, working in the round.
