Glam Rock Tee – Absolutely Glamor all over. The Tee can be styled for pretty much anything and perfect all year round. It has a super nice and very feminine fit and with an almost guaranteed WOW-factor.
The combination of glitter, mohair and sequins is just amazing – regardless of age and body type. The glitter at the hems gives the model a tight fit (but not too tight) around the sleeves and waist, while Silk Mohair together with the Paillettes yarn gives a perfectly fluffy look, and a looser fit on the body and arms.
The Silk Mohair makes the blouse soft, and you can hardly feel the many sequins from the yarn.
The model is worked from down and up. 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 stitches under each arm.

24 sts x 32 rows = 10 x 10 cm in stockinette stitch on a 3 mm needle with 1 strand of Isager Silk Mohair held together with 1 strand of Lammy Paillettes.
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 lose try a smaller size.

The model is knit from down and up on circular needles. The sleeves are placed on the body by the armholes. The yoke is knit on circular needles with decreases. All hems are knitted with glitter yarn. You can also choose felting together the yarn ends to avoid weaving them in. Find the guide on YouTube.
Body, sleeves, and yoke is knitted with 1 strand of Silk Mohair held together with 1 strand of Paillettes.
