Rattlesnake Tee/Sweater Kits

Base Details

The Rattlesnake Tee, designed by Jamie Hoffman (@knitosophy on Instagram) is inspired by rattlesnakes and their home in the Arizona desert. We have pre-made 3 kit options, but if you'd like to put together your own kit, feel free to choose from any of our colorways and please be sure to indicate your color choices in the notes section at checkout. Pattern can be purchased directly through Jamie's website by clicking here!

Additional details from the pattern:

Rattlesnake features a top-down seamless construction with a somewhat slouchy fit. Optional waist shaping is included. With a colorwork yoke and DK weight yarn, the tee is warm and suitable year-round, but it might be best to wear at night during the hot summer months.

Kits are dyed-to-order and will ship within 2-3 weeks.
