Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 397 – Cerro Tee

Like your favorite tee shirt only better! This simple pullover, designed by Tian Foley, has waist shaping and fitted ¾ length sleeves. If you'd prefer a boxier fit, leave out the waist shaping and work even from the hem to the armhole. The eyelet column detail at center front is the perfect complement to the flattering scoop neck. For a tee with more drape, this tee can also be worked in your favorite color of Firefly or Bella Lino.

The Yarn

85% pima cotton • 15% alpaca

Cerro combines Pima cotton with a bit of alpaca for a soft, smooth and silky yarn with excellent stitch definition. The palette consists of clear bright colors perfect for summer. If you prefer neutral shades, MountainTop Canyon is Cerro's undyed counterpart and has the same great fiber combination in undyed, naturally colored fibers.
