Holiday Jay Designed by Rachel Brockman Adapted by Yonca Ozbelli
The Holiday Jay is a re-imagined, Christmas-in-July version of the Jay Sweater, originally knit using Kingston Tweed. In this version, we’ve chosen Cotton True Sport – a soft, breezy, and cool Pima cotton yarn. Like the original, the tee features a lovely colorwork yoke. Thoughtful touches like the contrast color edging and a touch of broken rib around the hem create a top that’s perfect for your next summer soirée!

PATTERN NOTES This tee is worked seamlessly in the round from the top-down. The body and sleeves are separated at the armhole. After the body is completed, stitches around the armholes are picked up using the contrast color and a ribbed edging is worked. The neckline and sleeve cuffs are worked in the contrast color.
When working the yoke pattern, you may wish to place stitch markers between each repeat to help you stay on track.
