A really fun and approachable knit, our Lovely Lightweight Tee uses insanely easy German Short Rows to create its slooped hemlines, bateau neckline, and shapely sleeve caps. Otherwise, it is a simple bottom-up piece worked in the round to the underarms, then flat for the front and back. You’ll leave the simple neckline as is, sew the shoulders together, then pick up and knit the cap sleeves in the round, working a pretty decrease detail at the edge to keep them from fluttering! This pattern includes instructions for actual chest circumferences from 29 to 61 inches and is knit up in our easygoing but gorgeous Cattail Silk, a perfectly three-season 100% silk. You'll only need 2, 3, or 4 skeins... Yup! To learn more about materials, gauge, and finished sizes, just see product details, below!
