Hikoo’s new Concentric Cotton yarn is perfect for one piece summer projects because of it’s easy gradient construction. The challenge? Designing a tee pattern that lets the yarn do the talking. This top down tee has eyelet increases for the yoke and a mock garter stitch throughout - the purl bumps adding more visual interest to the gradient yarn.
