The Dublin Tee was inspired by a trip to Ireland. Not knowing what the weather would be in May, balmy or chilly, I thought layers were essential. This lacey cabled tee-shirt was born! Knit from the bottom up with underarm gussets and a raglan/saddle shoulder shaping, it is fun to work up. You MUST achieve the correct gauge and choose yarn wisely to have the best results. There is negative ease built in due to the large amount of stretch inherent in the lacey cable. Have fun layering over camis and tees and under cardigans or jackets.

There is a fair amount of stretch in the Lace and Cable pattern and 3-4 inches of negative ease (in the circumference) is built into the pattern. See schematics for more information.
A springy wool yarn that will bounce back is recommended. Superwash merino or blue-faced leicester would work well. There are charts as well as written instruction.
