Nigrum Tee Placket PDF english version
Nigrum Tee Placket is a feminine tee with a narrow, deep placket with buttons.
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 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 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 in color 15.
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 Silk 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.
