About Scotty BAMBOO 12 TIE TEE
Knit
Kits This Tee is made from a great new yarn, Bamboo 12. It is an ultra fine 100% bamboo yarn with a soft hand that feels like butter. We also have it in a heavier weight, Bamboo 7, and will be posting a pattern with that weight soon.

You will need a spool of Bamboo 12 yarn divided onto 2 spools, 3 mini buttons and a pair of #00000 needles. Email me when you are ordering and we can divide it out onto 2 spools for you.

The directions are for the 15-16" size, use the numbers in parentheses for the 11.5" and 18" size.

FRONT: Cast on 50 (34, 60)sts. Work 60(40, 70) rows in Stockinette Stitch, or until the piece measures 3 1/4"(2", 3 3/4"). Bind off 3(2, 4)sts at the beginning of the next 2 rows. Decrease 1 st at each edge on the next K row. Work 25(15, 32) rows. K17(11, 20), put 8(6,10)sts on a holder, K17(11, 20). P 1 row. K15(9,18), K2tog, attach another spool of yarn and K2tog, K15(9,18).

P25(17, 30), K2, K2, P25(17,30). Work 8 rows and continue to K the 2 sts at each back opening edge on the P row for the remainder of the piece to the neck. (For the 11.5 size, make a buttonhole on the next 2 rows as per the instructions below). Bind off 3(2, 4)sts at the armhole edge at the beginning of the next 2 rows.
