New Pattern - Ahoy May-Tee May 26, 2016 06:00

The Ahoy May-Tee (published in the June 2016 issue of I Like Knitting) is a lot of fun to knit! It begins by knitting the cable panel sideways, then joining the two ends together to make a ring. The lower and upper bodies are picked up and knit from either side of the cable panel. There's a little waist shaping for a flattering fit, and once the cable band is joined, it's completely seamless!


About the Pattern:

The Ahoy May-Tee pattern is written to fit a vast amount of bust measurements, ranging from 29.5" / 75 cm to 54.75" / 139 cm, with about 1" of positive ease.  And, due to the construction of the sweater, the length of the ribbing can be adjusted to fit your body. Knit the upper body first and try it on before deciding exactly how long you want to knit the ribbing.

The sleeves are knit top-down too, so those lengths can be adjusted for your own preference as well.

About the Yarn:

I choose Blue Sky Alpaca's Skinny Cotton yarn for this design. It's one of my all-time favorite cotton yarns! It's 100% organic cotton, and it comes in a variety of great colors, including this bold red (Cherry).
