Our Casual Summer Tee Knit-Along Round Up Is Here!

It seems like it was just May 1 and everyone was making plans to join Jaime and Amber on their quest to knit the perfectly beautiful casual summer tee. What makes it so casual, one might ask? Well, the rules to this knit along were that you could choose your own knitting adventure. Though we offered some pattern suggestions, participants were encouraged to select whatever they wanted as long as they used a yarn that contained some linen, cotton, tencel, rayon, or silk. 


Boy did you knitters deliver! Just look at the beautiful submissions. 

This is a grid of images. These images show women wearing different knitted sweaters that they made.

Jaime and Amber selected as the winner of the Knit-Along for Best Finished Casual Summer Tee. We love the beautiful silk blend Ankers tee.

We also asked participants to tag us when sharing their in-progress photos on Instagram for a contest for the Best In-Progress Photo.

Our winner was @aniliaj, who found the time to knit TWO casual tees and wowed us with her various in progress photos.

Both winners will receive a $50 gift certificate to Fancy Tiger Crafts. Congratulations!
