Casia Tee Placket PDF english version
Casia Tee Placket is a feminine tee with puff sleeves and a narrow, deep placket with buttons.
The tee does not need any final sewing despite the puff sleeves, as they are shaped with the help of in- and decreases.
The tee is knit top down, so you can easily adjust the length at both the body and sleeves while knitting.
By knitting short rows, the neckline gets its nice shape.
You will cast on stitches using the longtail cast on method, and you will bind off stitches using the regular bind off method.
The tee is supposed to be worn with approx. 0-10 cm positive ease. If your bust measurement is e. g. 84 cm, you should choose a size XS.
XS (S) M (L) XL
Bust measurement: 92 (96) 102 (108) 112 cm. Sleeve length measured center under the armhole opening: 15 (16) 17 (18) 18 cm. Body length measured center back: 52 (53,5) 56 (57,5) 59 cm.
100 (100) 120 (120) 140 g of Deluxe Silk Mohair from Krea Deluxe 240 m/20 g held double.
You can also choose a regular thin Silk Mohair e. g. Soft Silk Mohair from knitting for Olive.
The pictured model is knit with two threads of Deluxe Silk Mohair color 44.
You can choose any other yarn, as long as you obtain the correct gauge.
You will need 4-5 bottoms, approx. 10 mm, and 10 stitch markers knitting this tee.
The tee is knit in stockinette stitch knitting back and forth on needle size 4.5 mm (80 cm circular needle) and later in the round when you finish your placket and join your work.
All hems are knit on circular needle 3.5 mm (80 cm).
19 sts x 27 rows in stockinette stitch back and forth and later in the round on needle size 4.5 mm = 10 x 10 cm using two strands of Deluxe Mohair.
Using a regular thin Silk Mohair e. g. Soft Silk Mohair from Knitting for Olive 225 m/25 g I reach the gauge on needle size 4 mm.
