Is it too early to think about Spring knitting? I don’t think so, but I’m generally not a rule follower. Don’t get me wrong though; I will always be an Autumn girl at heart all year long.

If you like to knit out of season, check out Marram Tee. Pattern is a simple, lightweight top that is worked top down with minimal shaping. The front is first cast on and worked flat to the underarm with some short row shaping for the shoulders and neck. The back is then cast on and worked similarly with short row shoulder shaping. The front and back are joined at the underarms and tee is worked in the round with a bit of waist shaping to the bottom. Finally, the shoulders are seamed, and stitches are picked up for the sleeves.
Recommended ease for Marram Tee is 5-6 inches at the bust. Sizing is as follows:
