Say hello to cool and classy Colette!

The Colette tee is a boxy summer tee with a cable and lace pattern. The tee is started at the back neck and increased to the full width of the back. The increases over the cable pattern are fully charted. Then stitches are picked up for the shoulders and worked as the front of the tee. The front and back are joined at underarm and the body is then worked in the round. Stitches are then picked up from the body for the sleeves and the neckband. The sleeves are worked in the cable pattern and the neckband in 1x1 ribbing. The hem, cuffs, and neckband are finished with a tubular bind off, which provides a beautiful and stretchy edge that looks like the stitches roll over the edge to the other side of the ribbing.

The Colette tee is a boxy summer tee with a cable and lace pattern. The tee is started at the back neck and increased to the full width of the back. The increases over the cable pattern are fully charted. Then stitches are picked up for the shoulders and worked as the front of the tee. The front and back are joined at underarm and the body is then worked in the round. Stitches are then picked up from the body for the sleeves and the neckband. The sleeves are worked in the cable pattern and the neckband in 1x1 ribbing. The hem, cuffs and neckband are finished with a tubular bind off, which provides a beautiful and stretchy edge that looks like the stitches roll over the edge to the other side of the ribbing.

For a summer version I would recommend cotton, viscose or linen blend yarns that have a lot of drape. If you wish to make a warmer wintery version, choose yarn with high wool content. For the cables to show best, I recommend choosing unicolor or slightly tonal colorways. The Colette tee is worked by holding two strands of fingering weight yarn together, but you can also work it in a single strand of DK weight yarn.

The length of the body and sleeves are easily modified to suit your own body measurements. I recommend trying the sweater on every now and then while working on it to make sure you get the perfect length for your style. Note: You can easily modify the body shorter for a cropped look. For a cropped sweater I would only work 15-20 cm / 6-8 inches for the body.
