Umbre Lovre Knitting Pattern by Allyson Dykhuizen

Umbre Lovre is a loose fitting tee with umbre striping and stained glass like polka dot detailing at the top and bottom. It’s worn off the shoulder and easily thrown over a tank for a fun, flirty look. It’s as no nonsense to wear as it is to knit, and I’m sure picking out colors will be your biggest challenge!

Umbre Lovre

Tee is worked in the round from the bottom up. Stitches are held while front is finished, then picked back up for back. All colors are held and worked up the side of the tee.
