Welcome the sunshine with Blume! Budding lace, slimming lines, a flattering v-neck, and a breezy hi-lo hem will make this tee your go-to warm weather knit.

Construction: Blume is worked seamlessly top down. The raglan yoke is worked flat and then joined in the round at the sleeve split. The body is then worked in the round until the hi-lo hem. A simple I-cord bind off finishes the hem, neckline, and sleeves. The lace is an easily memorized 8 st repeat, (yo, k2, p3tog, k2, yo, k1), that is worked every right side row. (Knit or purl even on WS rows.)

Techniques used: Working flat and in the round, simple lace on every RS row/rnd (on WS rows/rnds, knit or purl even), raglan shaping, German Short Row shaping (full instructions in pattern), I-cord BO.

Pattern is fully written out and charted.
