Wura Tee This raglan sweater tee is worked in the round, from the top down using basic knit and purl skills. It calls for worsted weight cotton yarn and it is seamless. The textured sleeves are worked as you work the yoke. No need to fear being stuck on sleeve island. The sleeves and lower body are adorned by beautiful diamond moss texture.
The recommended yarn for this garment is cotton and since cotton tends to stretch over time, the finished measurements for chest have 1 - 2 inch negative ease: 28 (31, 35, 39, 43) (47, 51, 55, 59) inches. 68.5 (77, 85.5, 96, 108.5) (117, 127.5, 136, 146.5) cm.
If using Lion Brand Pima Cotton Yarn as per sample in pattern, you will need: 4 (4, 5, 5, 6) (6, 7, 7, 8) skeins
It is available as a knit kit from Lion Brand. You would get all the yarn required for your size of interest, along with the complimentary pattern. To purchase the kit, please use my affiliate link here. Please note that I receive a small commission without any additional cost to you.
Wura Tee is the perfect summer tee. It is a simple top-down raglan project that is suitable for a garment newbie. If you do not like to be stuck on sleeve island, this project is for you! You knit your short sleeves as you go!
As a fun fact, Wura means Gold in Yoruba language, a Nigerian dialect.
I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did, and still do!
