For the past three years linen has been experiencing a resurgence within the fashion industry. This ancient fibre however is nothing of a fad. Fragments of linen more than 34 000 years old were excavated in a cave in Georgia making linen the oldest fibre known to have been used to make fabric. The reason why these fragments were able to withstand the test of time is because linen is also one of the strongest fibres in existence. It is therefore not surprising then that the oldest surviving garment in the world was made of linen too.
HØR n.11 by Lone Kjeldsen is another perfect summer tee knitted sideways starting from the middle of the body to the edge of the sleeve. It is ribbed all the way through and features visible seams.
Until Next Time… Happy Knitting!
