Taco Tuesday Tee


A quirky short sleeved t-shirt design embellished with tacos and words at the yoke.


I love tacos! I love nachos and burritos and quesadillas. I have wanted to design this basic tee for a couple of years now and I hope there are at least a couple knitters out there who also might like to proclaim their love of Mexican food. Enjoy! Honoring Cinco De Mayo, May 5th, and National Taco Day on October 4th! Taco: noun. a Mexican dish consisting of a fried tortilla, typically folded, filled with various mixtures, such as seasoned meat, beans, lettuce and tomatoes.

• The body and sleeves are worked in the round to the underarms, then are joined before working the yoke.
• The sweater is designed to be worn with slight positive ease, there are 1.5-2 inches of positive ease worked
into the actual sweater design. Make a larger size to provide even more ease.
