Cherry Blossoms & Stripes Crossover Yoke

This tee provides another great example of how the Crossover Yoke style from Clever Crossing Variations for Tabula Rasa Knits lends itself to using leftover knit scraps.  The Front Yoke and Yoke Insert are both cut from the same print, but Rae carefully positioned the pattern pieces to create some contrast between the two fronts.  The print is repeated in the back yoke and 3/4 length sleeves.  The lower front and back and the main part of the sleeves are cut from a heather blue solid.  The yoke neckline, sleeves, and hem are all banded with another coordinating knit print, which pulls the tee together from top to bottom.  As with several of the crossover yoke samples, Rae was using up the bits and pieces left from one of our knit bundles to create a fun knit top.  The biggest surprise comes in the back, where she added another flash of crossing over one shoulder.
