Scrappy V Tee Pattern PDF


Make great use of those leftover yarn scraps!

Somewhat of a cousin to the V-back Tee, Scrappy V was designed to be a happy marriage of yarn scraps and a V-shaped neckline. It features a wide V-shaped neckband with a yoke comprised of stripy, scrappy short rows to approximately level out the shoulders while also adding a bit of length to the back of the garment. The tee is light and flowy with roomy shoulders and short sleeves. For the body, scraps of yarn can be added at the knitter’s whim for a colorful or neutral outcome. The colors could also be alternated to create a more balanced effect. With this pattern, knitter becomes artist as each scrap is added as with the stroke of a brush. What will your painting look like?
