Harvested Tee

RV Designs free crochet tee pattern, harvested tee.

Sometimes, when I do design work for magazines or yarn companies, there is a hank or 2 left over from the sample. Sometimes the publisher or yarn company want it returned, sometimes they don’t. It seems there is no rhyme or reason to it, it is a “sometimes” issue as no company seems to have a hard and fast rule on it. In the case of this deliciously golden cotton, I ended up with a few hanks in my stash.

Lucky me– stash enhancement, lucky you– new pattern!
