Having quickly become the go-to tee pattern for many, Rift by designer Jacqueline Cieslak turns your assumptions about what a basic tee pattern is on their head.

This bottom-up knit has instructions for not one but two necklines, optional bust darts, short or long sleeves, and a custom fit bicep. It also features a slightly cropped body and a split high-low hem in twisted rib.

We have paired this with Allino from BC Garn. The perfect balance of cotton and linen for an easy-breezy summer knit. This yarn has a subtle tonal effect in the finished fabric, due to the two different fibres taking up the dye differently.

Kit includes:

  • Yarn required for the short sleeve version in the size selected (see size chart below)
  • Copy of the Rift pattern by Jacqueline Cieslak.

Also required but not included:

  • One US 8 (5 mm) 32” (sizes 34-46) or 40” (sizes 50-66) circular; DPNs for sleeves if not using magic loop
  • Stitch markers
  • Darning needle
  • Extra needle in similar size or smaller than project needle for 3-needle bind-off

To choose your size, measure the circumference around the fullest part of your bust, then add 6-12” (depending on how much ease you want) and choose the closest size.

A note about ease: This tee is designed to be worn with 6-12” of ease; however, to get the fit represented in the pattern sizes, folks at the smaller end of the size range may prefer less ease (6-9”) and folks at the higher end may prefer more ease (9-12”).

For additional details about sizing Rift, check out the test knitting roundup on Jacqui’s blogFor the long-sleeve version, you will require 15% more yarn.
