Continuing my lace series, short sleeves have been added to this chevron lace bodice to create a sweet tee. Less complex than it looks, it’s a pleasure to knit, light and airy to wear, and quite versatile.

Pieces are knit flat, the trim consisting of a few garter rows. Once the 9 stitch/8 row repeat of the chevron lace is mastered – easily – this is a quick knit.
