Posted on: May 21st, 2020 by nina chicago

We’re so excited about the new Rock It Tee from Tanis Fiber Arts! This simple tee is size inclusive is so wearable that we think everyone should have one!

There are many fiber options for this one. You can use one fiber or mix & match as shown above. Tanis used a wool and a mohair for her design. We’re using combos of mohair, bamboo, silk, linen, and more. Don’t let all the options overwhelm you because we are here to help you with your choices! Just let us know what fibers and colors you prefer and we’d be happy to pick out a few options for you.

We’re gonna kick off this knit along on June 1st and run it all through June and July. Virtual sessions for this KAL will take place on Wednesday evenings from 6pm to 7pm on June 10th, June 24th, July 8th and July 22nd. We’ll be using #rockitteeninachicago on social media so everyone can see everyone else’s tee!
