Bornholmer Sild Tee (Bornholmer Herring Tee) is an ULTRA-LUXURIOUS and very feminine tee – the little frills and the herringbone pattern on all the edges as well as the round yoke give a really good and beautiful fit.

The top is knit with my own yarn, Rå Feminisme Lux (75% merino, 20% silk & 5% stellini) – but can of course also be knit in other yarns as long as you keep the tension the same. The herringbone pattern is knit in Madeira Lamé and gives an elasticated edge.

The whole top is knit exclusively on 3.5 mm circular needles (guiding needles) bottom up and only minimal finishing is required.

Difficulty level

Measurements & Materials for Bornholmer Sild Tee
The measurements for the top are guiding only. The tee will expand in use: For Small, Medium and Large about 1-2 cm and about 3 cm for X-Large, XX-Large and XXX-Large. I recommend that you knit with just a few centimetres’ positive ease – if the top is too large it will lose its flattering shape.

The top is designed in Rå Feminisme Lux from Henius Knitwear. This is a sumptuous quality of yarn (75% Merino, 20% Silk & 5% Stellini/silver thread). You can of course choose another type of yarn, as long as you keep the tension.

You can easily use other types or qualities of glitter – choose a glitter yarn that suits 2 or 3 mm needles.

25 stitches = 10 cm stockinette in 1 thread on 3.5 mm circular needles.

Recommended needles
I recommend that you knit a swatch before starting your project.  If your square is not measuring to gauge: go up a needle size if you knit too tightly and down a needle size if you knit too loosely.

  • 5 mm 80 cm circular needles for magic loop on the sleeves
  • 5 mm 60 cm circular needles for the body and the yoke (I recommend Prym’s ergonomic circular needles).


  • 2 stitch markers (I highly recommend the pear-shaped safety pins in two different colours so you can always see where a new round starts)
  • Possibly 1 stitch thread
