An interview with Shellie Anderson on Scio, knit in June Cashmere fingering yarn


Scio, our newest design collaboration with Shellie Anderson, is a roomy and relaxed pullover tee that is knit in the round from the bottom up. We took a moment to ask Shellie about her latest design.

 

June Cashmere Interview with Shellie Anderson

What was your inspiration for Scio?

Shellie: I wanted to create a versatile, relaxed fit tee in fingering that can be worn as a casual piece with jeans or dressed up a bit with a skirt. The simple eyelet ribbing adds interest and a bit of movement to SCIO. 

Where did you find the name for your design?

Shellie: I'm currently using Oregon city and town names and SCIO happens to be one of them. 

What technique tips do you have to share?

Shellie: As I typically use in most of my designs with a shoulder seam, I've used German Short Row shaping at the shoulders and they are joined using a 3-needle Bind-off. The result is an incredibly professional looking seam without the bulk of a sewn seam. These two techniques alone really elevated the finished appearance of my knitting.

What’s your favorite thing about the design?

Shellie: My favorite things about this design are of course the fabric created by the June Cashmere yarn and the relaxed, comfortable fit.

What is your design process?

Shellie: I don't really have a set design process. I get inspiration from everywhere - online, catalogs, even the tv. Sometimes an image drives an idea, or it could be a stitch pattern, the shape of a piece, or sometimes I start with a specific yarn and work on an idea from there, taking into account the characteristics of the yarn.

Scio is such a lovely piece to knit. Worked in the round from the bottom up in stockinette stitch, a bit of lace adds interest at the hem, sleeve, and neck. The only seams are at the shoulders. Wear as a roomy tee from spring through fall and style with a shirt underneath for winter for a truly versatile cashmere piece.
