Pattern: Salty Air Tee by Samantha Guerin (link leads to Ravelry)

Size: S

Yarn: Freshly Cut on Merino Linen Sock

Amount: I used every last bit of 2 skeins!

Needles: US 3 (3.25 mm), US 4 (3.5 mm)

Started: June 17, 2022
Finished: May 22, 2023


Sleeves: I was concerned about the sleeves being large enough, so I modified slightly

After the 4 rounds straight (after the final increase round) I’m adding 5 stitches for each sleeve in the next row.
K33, m1L, k9
Knit around next row
Then move to sleeve separation

When separating, I followed size 3 for everything except moving 67 stitches on hold for each sleeve.

Length: I am really not a crop-top kind of person, so I added length to the body. After running out of yarn on my first skein (I did not alternate), I knit both sleeves with the second skein of yarn first before joining it on the body. That way I could use every bit of the skein to give me length! I ended with about 1g of yarn left.

I’ll be honest: I wasn’t sure I was going to like the yarn or the finished item. I’m sensitive to textures and heat… and I LOVE this top! The Merino Linen Sock creates such a lovely fabric and is not itchy or hot at all! I wore the tee out on a trip running errands on an 80+ degree day and didn’t have a problem! And I didn’t wear a tank underneath either! I was SHOCKED. I’m officially a knit-tee convert!

Ravelry: I also have a Ravelry Project Page for this knit. However, many people (myself included) have had issues with the new Ravlery. It is known to cause eye strain, headaches, migraines, and seizures. Please be careful when proceeding to Ravelry!
