Feminista is over the top luxury and a very feminine tee that you can style in many ways and use all year round. It has a great fit. The combination of glitter, mohair and beads makes it stand out – it is simply WOW! No matter the age or body-type. The glitter at the hems gives the model a tight fit (but not too tight) around the sleeves and waist, while the mohair gives it a perfect fluffy look, and a looser fit on the body and arms. 

The model is worked with Isager Silk Mohair on circular needles size 3 mm, but you can choose silk mohair from any other brand as long as you get gauge.
The hems are knit with a superfine glitter yarn (for needles size 2-3 mm) and the beads are placed the way you want them to – there is no chart! 

The model is worked from the top down. Sleeves are added on the body piece and the yoke is knit with decreases evenly distributed. The model has no finishing work besides weaving in ends and grafting 6 sts under each arm. Please note that the pattern has two types of neckline – the wider neckline just below the collarbone and a slightly narrower neckline just above the collarbone. Both types of neckline are described in the pattern, and you can choose which one you prefer, at the very end. The amount of yarn will be the same for either types of neckline. The photos with details of beads gives you an example for placement of the beads, but feel free to choose how many and where you place the beads. The beads on the model are placed with approx. 4-5 cm distance between them.

Gauge
25 sts x 36 rows = 10 x 10 cm in stockinette stitch on a 3 mm needle with 1 thread of Isager Silk Mohair.

Needle
I recommend knitting a swatch before beginning the project to check if the recommended needle size gives you the correct gauge. If you knit to tight try a larger needle and on the other hand, if you knit to loose try a smaller size.

Needles

  • Circular needles 2,5 mm - 80 cm for sleeve hems (magic-loop method)
  • Circular needles 2,5 mm – 40-60 cm for other hems
  • Circular needles 3,0 mm – 80 cm for sleeves (magic-loop method)
    Circular needles 3,0 mm - 60 cm for body and yoke (I recommend Prym’s ergonomic circular needles 3,00 mm)

 Other

  • Crochet hook size 0,75 mm (used to place bead on the stitch)
  • 2 markers (I highly recommend the pear shaped safety pins in two different colours)
