Everyday Attitude Tee

A loose-fitting striped T-shirt is my ultimate staple garment. Paired with the crisp texture of linen that gets softer with every touch, this might just be the perfect summer T-shirt. The two contrasting colors of this natural fiber get accentuated through the striped design, and the unusual top-down construction adds a chevron detail to the shoulders.
I’ve come to appreciate linen not just for its texture, but especially for the cool touch and heat conductivity. The comparably small ecological footprint of linen makes this natural fiber a great choice – one I hope will get even more popular with knitters as well.

#EverydayAttitudeTee

Less of a hobby, more of an addiction! 
I cast on another sosuknits pattern. This one is a lightweight summer tee called #everydayattitudetee from the gorgeous #knittingwithattitude 10 year anniversary book. 
I’m knitting it in ‘Oatmeal’ & ‘Ink’ Lithuanian linen from midwinteryarns

Really like this linen-tee but arms are a tad tight. Not terribly so, it’s very wearable, just not as oversized as I planned. No give in the linen. Lesson learned, already cast on Mk2 in red & navy. 😆

Wishing you all a colourful, fabulous, productive & safe 2022! 🥂 

I can’t get the top 9 app to work but that’s okay, actually much prefer to look back at all my years projects in chronological order. It would appear that in 2021 I became a sock knitter, hadn’t realised I’d made so many! 🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦🧦

I finished:
19 objects (28 if I count individual socks 😆)
11 projects that are partially or entirely striped;
11 projects knitted from stash yarn;
9 pairs of socks (1 pair not pictured);
6 sweaters;
5 projects that included brioche;
5 projects were KALs 
5 projects designed by sosuknits ;
3 shawls;
3 projects were gifted;
3 projects designed by westknits;
2 projects by boylandknitworks;

Wonder what projects 2022 will bring? 🌟

@knitwithattitude is hosting a Year Long Knit-a-long for the designs in their beautiful anniversary book that came out last year!

And in June, we’re knitting my contribution, the Everyday Attitude Tee! 🎉 

Knit in lightweight linen, this casual tee is a wardrobe staple and a perfect project for summer. 
⁠
'You probably don’t even know what attitude means!’ – goes a line (translated from German) from a song about and against racism from Die Ärzte, my all-time favorite band. Having a strong set of morals and values expressed with kindness as well as emphatic strength – an attitude – has always been incredibly important to me, and it is one of the main guides for leading my life: for which people and businesses I associate with, which products I buy, which politics I support.⁠
⁠
When I was asked to design something with this prompt, my favorite band and punk past came to mind, and one of the most iconic, essential garments: the striped tee. The chevron pattern at the shoulders adds a bit of a twist to this knitted version of a classic striped tee.'⁠
⁠
Have you chosen your colours yet? Everyday Attitude is made using Växbo Lingarn - a 100% linen yarn in an amazing range of colours. ⁠
⁠
The Everyday Attitude Tee is featured on the @knitwithattitude blog, so for all details pop over for a little read. And if you are wondering what this whole year long knit-a-long is - and whether or not there are prizes involved, you'll find all information about this on the blog as well.⁠ There is a direct link to the KWA blog in my bio.⁠
⁠
Ready, steady - KNIT!!!⁠

My Everyday Attitude Tee is progressing …..very slowly! It’s taking ages and I’m getting a little bored tbh. Might pack it a way for a while. With any luck it will be ready for next summer. 🤞🏼

4 rows of navy for every 2 of red was a fine plan but the slip stitch side seam is a head pickler 🤪
Serves me right for fiddling with the pattern!

2nd (slightly modified) #everydayattitudetee well underway. 

Love this red so by having less of it I hope it pops more. Flawless logic! ❤️
4 rows of navy for every 2 of red.
