We dyed this exclusive base yarn, Iridium, for Unwind to go with the hot weather in Los Angeles. The blend is 50% tencel (wood pulp!) and 50% superwash merino in a fingering weight yarn with a subtle shimmer. It only takes two or three skeins to knit this!
Originally the Chevron T pattern was designed for the Passport to Unwind Yarn Club and the club members received the pattern for free. Now, the pattern is available on Ravelry.

The Chevron T is a wardrobe essential and can be worn with the V Neck in front or back. Or make two V Neck sides for a little extra allure.
- Finished measurements: 36 (40, 44)”. Chevron T is intended to be worn with up to 2” of positive ease.
- Gauge of 22 sts and 32 rows in 4” is a post blocked gauge. You should knit and steam block a swatch before determining size to make. The Chevron stitch knits up rather crumpled and will smooth out and change size of piece when steamed.

Tencel yarn is naturally breathable and has 50% greater moisture absorption than cotton. It’s smooth like silk and cool like linen, but is relatively resistant to wrinkling. All these properties make it well-suited to summer knits or hot weather garments.
