Lace lovers and lace-curious knitters alike will love the Hornbill Tee. The boxy shape allows you to cruise along in the lace pattern without any confusing shaping. The body is worked in the round from the lower edge to the underarm, then the upper front and back —including the sleeves—are worked separately back and forth.

NOTES

  • The body of this pullover is worked in the round from the lower edge to the underarm, then the upper front and back are worked separately back and forth.

  • The sleeves are cast on in 6-stitch groups. Work these stitches into the pattern by working an additional half-repeat of the chart for each cast-on group.

  • When working the neck shaping, only work a yarnover if its corresponding decrease can be worked; otherwise, work these stitches in stockinette stitch.
