Yesterday, we knitted the front of the Blissful Tee. With the front and back knitted up, it’s time to finish the t-shirt. I’m using Universal Yarn Filly and KNITTER’S PRIDE Mindful 80cm (32″) Fixed Circular Lace Knitting Needle – 2.75mm (US 2).
I’ve placed the shoulder stitches for both front and back on the needles and using a three needle bind off, I’ll complete the shoulder seams first.
The next step is seaming the side seams.
Starting at the bottom of the work, I use the mattress stitch to close the sides. The colors match quite nicely. Starting with the same color change for the front and back worked well!
Now that the side seams are finished, it’s time to pick up stitches for the neckline and the sleeves. I pick up stitches around the neckline and knit around a 1/1 rib.
The armholes are also finished in the round after picking up stitches and knitting a 1/1 rib for 1½”.
The project is finished!
When I try the top on, I find there’s no positive ease, but it fits me well. Now I’ll wash it with Soak wash and lay it flat to dry.
It was so much fun knitting up the Blissful Tee, I used Universal Yarn Filly, KNITTER’S PRIDE Mindful 80cm (32″) Fixed Circular Lace Knitting Needle – 2.75mm (US 2) and Soak Wild Mint wash.
On a nice spring or cooler summer day, I can wear my new top and enjoy the compliments.
