Just Beachy Knitting Pattern by Emma Welford

JustBeachyVallyYarnsGoshenEmmaWelfordHollaKnitsSummer20132

I love super-fitted, body-conscious knits. But who wants all that cling when it’s hot out? I’m letting go and relaxing with a comfortable colorblocked tee! Just Beachy has identical fron and back pieces, so it’s perfect to throw on over a bikini or when running out the door–no second glance required. Mesh sides let in a cool breeze and show off your perfectly contrasting tank top underneath…or maybe even some bare summer skin!

Notes Identical front and back pieces are worked flat then joined at the shoulders with a 3 needle bind- off. The colorblocking is achieved with intarsia, so a separate ball of yarn is used for each color section — there is no stranding required. Don’t forget to twist the yarn when switching colors to avoid holes by bringing your old color in front of the new one. Think of it as trapping the old color between the new one and your work. Sides are seamed and the neckline is finished with an I-cord bind-off. Knit the first and last stitches of every row to aid in easier seaming.
