Inspired by the arrival of spring and with it the butterflies in Cape Town, down here in the Southern Hemisphere!

A cotton based Tee is the ideal top for warm weather, the sleeveless
T-Shape with enough length to cover the upper arms is flattering for all busty ladies. Cotton Blends with either Bamboo or Silk will give a lovely drape to the Tee while remaining cool and comfortable.

The design has a gentle curved hemline created with short rows. An easy butterfly stitch pattern gives the Tee a feminine touch. Both details can be omitted for an easier knit and forms a good basic for summer.

Choose from the Hip Measurements to size or make a larger size than usually chosen for an over-sized look. Schematics are also included for easy reference.
