Cosmos tee (english)
Difficulty 3 of 5
Cosmos tee is a classic raglan tee with a fine and feminine expression. It is knitted top-down which makes it easier for you to change the lengths of both sleeves and body.
The tee is knitted top-down with short rows to shape the neck and provide depth around the front neckline. The pattern is knitted by diagram. When the chart is completed, the rest of the tee is knitted in stockinette knitting. The picot edges that suppress the feminine are knitted by a single pattern round that acts as a bending edge.
The tee has a positive ease of 5-6.5cm. and fits perfectly to both shorts and skirts.
