Vaffel Tee – by Kari-Helene Rane
Vaffel Tee is a lightweight and luxurious knit ideal for layering in winter or on its own in spring and autumn. It is intentionally knitted on larger needles for a luxurious and light feel utilising the gorgeously soft KBN range from John Arbon Textiles. The simple shape combined with the detailed stiches and finishes makes this an interesting knit without being too challenging. Perfect for an advanced beginner or as a fun engaging knit for the more experienced.

Vaffel is knitted flat and in one piece starting from the front hem and worked towards the shoulder, split at the shoulder for neckline and then worked from the shoulder to the back hem. However, should the knitter wish to work the stocking stitch body of the tee in the round, a separate note has been made for this in brackets. Make sure to wet block the tension square before casting on as due to the large needle size, the tension (especially the rows) can alter by a large amount.
