Designed for a shapely figure the Beltane Tee is an hourglass. The horizontal bust darts (HBD) help shape this pullover and the hip to waist decreases allow for those of us with larger hips have extra room to breath.

The piece is worked in the round to underarms, then divided and worked separately. Front is shaped with HBD at bustline. These darts add length (about 1”), NOT WIDTH, to the bust. For more length repeat HBD.

Choose a size as close to your actual bust circumference as possible, or even with some negative ease, for a fitted look.
