Suns Out Tee

Continuing my obsession with cotton...I made another tee!
I love colour blocking, and I had the idea to make an easy cotton tee using two colours.
I made this a crop for myself, but it can be made to ANY size/length you'd like!

I've had such a huge response on the Picnic Cotton Tee (thank you!), I wanted to share another VERY easy, beginner friendly, adjustable to any size...Cotton Tee.

Here is the Suns Out Tee!

Notes before you start:
-this item is meant to be light weight using cotton yarn
-You can choose any 2 colours you'd like (or just one colour and skip the colour change!)
- I used Lily Sugar N Cream Cotton Yarn in Soft Ecru and Tangerine (total: just under 5oz, 1 skein of each colour)
-the pattern below will refer to the first colour as COLOUR A, and the alternate colour as COLOUR B
-I made a size medium for myself - you can change this to ANY SIZE, by increasing or decreasing the initial chains to start (go ahead and measure the chains to your body or to the person you're making it for before you start, that's it!)
-Also, you can complete less or more rows to adjust the length (I made mine a crop top)
-If you are changing the length make sure to do this evenly for each colour (I completed 12 rows of Tangerine and 12 rows of Soft Ecru)

Changing colours for this project: 
-With COLOUR A, SL ST in last stitch of that particular row
-Now working in that same stitch - with COLOUR B, attach yarn, pull through and SL ST
- continue pattern

Row 3 - 10: *repeat Row 2

- the following rows will be shaping the collar

(continuing with Colour B)

Row 21: DC across, ch 2, turn
Row 22: DC 11, CH 21, DC 11(you can add more chains here if you want your collar to open up a little more, just make sure to have 43 across in the next row)
Row 23: DC across, ch 2, turn (43)

Row 24 - 34: *repeat Row 23
(change to Colour A)
Row 35: DC across, ch 2, turn

Right now, you should have one rectangle piece with a neck hole in the middle.
Fold in half, and SL ST each side together, leaving arm holes (as wide or narrow as you'd like)

Sleeves (crocheted in the round/both sides)
Row 1: SC 35 around, SL ST, CH 2
Row 2: DC 35, SL ST
Row 3 - 4: *repeat Row 2
SL ST twice, fasten off

(you can add more rows to the sleeves if you want them longer, I folded them up for a different look)

That's it!
I'd love to see your Suns Out Tee
