Welcome to our weekly feature, What to Make Wednesday! The yarns here at Ewe Ewe are so versatile and I love to share ideas about what you can knit with them.

Looking for a light and lacy tee for spring and summer? Look no further than the wildly popular Tegna knitting pattern from Boyland Knitworks.

This sweater is a showstopper! From the flowy fabric to the beautiful lace hem, you’ll be sure to wear this tee all year round. Think how nice it will look in the summer and how pretty it would look as a shell under a jacket for work in the fall.

Fluffy Fingering merino yarn from Ewe Ewe would work perfectly for Tegna. The gauge of the sweater is a loose 22 sts over 4” which I get using a size US 6 needle. That means this project would knit quickly and practically fly off the needles!

Any color of Fluffy Fingering yarn would work so well in this project! Choose a neutral like the Charcoal one above or go for a bright Berry, springy Saffron or rich Red Velvet.

Plus, it’s a great price point in Fluffy Fingering. You’ll need 4 to 7 skeins depending on your size which works out to be $40-$70 dollars for a new, gorgeous top you’ll wear again and again.

Choose your color combo: Ewe Ewe Yarns Fluffy Fingering Merino yarn.
