I am happy with my T Time. Just a few hours on the machine and I am wearing a new top.
Pattern: T Time
Yarn: Cotton Tweed by Cabin Fever
Tension: Stitch Dial - 4, Upper Tension -7.
Modifications: I shortened the sleeves from the suggested 3/4 length to elbow length. More appropriate for summer wear, I thought. And, I lengthened the lower portion so my overall Tee is 22 inches long.
What Did I Learn?
Sideways knitting looks quite attractive - especially when offset by contrasting, vertical knitting.
The sideways knit with it's boat neck shaping required no edging. The slight, under curl at the neck provides just the right amount of neck shaping to make the Tee comfortable to wear.
The pattern of 5 needles working, one needle not working creates a 'rib' like look and also means no curling at the lower edges.
T Time would make a lovely winter pullover. Knit in wool, with the longer sleeves, it would be a perfect candidate for self striping yarns, like Noro, Marble or any sock yarn. And - it is done before dinner. My favourite thing.
