Split Neckline Cap Sleeve Tee, stefanie japel,  Fitted Knits book, ravelry,  finished object,  100% pure wool organic Turkish yarn,  linate cotolin gold, knitaly colorado yarns
And I have another FO (finished object): Split-Neckline Cap Sleeve Tee by Stefanie Japel from Fitted Knits book.

I cast on for S size even my gauge was finer: 20 sts/4 ". I made some modifications:

1) I made it shorter.
2) I added waist shaping which is inspired from Picovoli by Grumperina:

Set-up round: k17, pm, k46, pm, k17, pm (side seam marker), k17, pm, k46, pm, k17.
Important note: While decreasing/increasing, 34 sts remain untouched at each side, and increases and decreases are worked over the front/back sections.
Decrease round: K to first marker, *sm, ssk, knit to 2 sts before next marker, k2tog, sm*, k to next marker, repeat between *s, k to end of round;

Repeat decrease round every 3rd round 6 more times.

Knit even for 2 inches (5 cm)

Increase round: k to first marker, *sm, m1(right), knit to next marker, m1 (left), sm* knit to next marker, repeat between *s, knit to end of round.

Repeat increase round every 3rd round 5 more times.

For this project I used 250 gr of Linate CotoLin Gold from Okiteks yarns (the main color) and less than one skein of brown Knitaly from Colorado Yarns (for contrasting color)

Love it! Especially the way the difference in the knitting created differently spaced stripes. Very interesting!
