My second top! I bought this as a kit from We are Knitters. The Dive Tee was so easy to make! It is worked flat in two panels, and through construction you end up with sleeves and a nice collar!
The yarn, Pima Cotton by We are Knitters, was so nice to work with! It's very soft and didn't dry out my hands like most cotton yarns do. I picked up some fun new skills with this pattern as well. The pattern was fairly well written and easy to follow. I would have appreciated some more explanatory pictures, but once I figure things out, it was super easy.
While I definitely don't regret buying this, I also don't know that I would rush out to buy another WAK kit. They're great because they come with everything you could possibly need to make the item, but they also come with a cost. As someone who is definitely on a budget, this is something I am very mindful of. This was a nice splurge and worth it while I'm still learning how to knit tops, but in the future I'm going to have to stick with just patterns and hunting down comparable, budget friendly yarn.

Your tee looks beautiful. I'm knitting this and stuck on step 6. Can you help? After dropping the stitch, how do I keep it from continuing to unravel? It just says "yarn over and cast it off" 3 times??ReplyDelete
Thank you so much!! If I understand your question correctly, that's exactly what is supposed to happen - the stitches will unravel below. The stitch that you drop should unravel to the row you did on the first row of step 4. That's what creates the wide lacey part. I hope that helped! Please let me know if you have any more questions!Delete
Hey Sara, the top looks great! I am also in the process of knitting the Dive Tee but I am struggling with the increase 1 to create the holes. Did you just do a yarn over? It talks about picking up a strand twisting it and then working it as indicated in the patter but the patter just says increase 1, knit, increase 1 and that doesn’t tell you whether to slip it or knit it…any help would be appreciated it is driving me nutty :)ReplyDelete
Hi!! I'm currently out of town, so I don't have the pattern in front of me (but didn't want to leave you hanging). If memory serves me correctly, I did a yarn over to make the holes that create the "v" design. I think this is the correct way to do it becuase later in the pattern you will drop a stitch that will unravel and form the more distinct holes. I'm not sure that part would work as well with another type of increase. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any more questions :)Delete
