I love mixing knit and crochet. I'll always be a knitter first and crocheter second. But that crochet skill sure comes in handy when you need a quick toy or accessory! Or when you want to add a fun detail to an otherwise straightforward knit tee, which is the case with In a While, Crocodile. I love shoulder detail, and with this design you can add as much or as little as you like. Keep it simple with textured knit stripes, or go big by adding Crocodile Stitch as a finishing touch. Either way, when you are done knitting this tee you will have a fun, easy to wear top you can wear all summer long.
This tee is knit in the round from the bottom up. Sts are then held for the front while the raglan shaping is finished for the back. The front is then completed with tshirt-like neck shaping. Sleeves are then completed and either left with simple textured striping or Crocodile Stitch is added, and seamed in. Sts are picked up for the neckband.

Note: You will need an addition skein of Stroll Glimmer for optional Crocodile stitch on sleeves

This was the first time I'd ever knitted a sweater, although I'd made several flat pieces before. It's an easy pattern and was so much fun that I made it up again, one with the textured stripe sleeves and another with the crocheted crocodile-stitch detail on the sleeves. I get so many compliments on both of them!
