This short-sleeved, u-neck tee with contrast trim and floral corsage appliquรฉ is knit from the top down with minimal finishing in easy stockinetteโ€”it simply flies off the needles! Sheer and lightweight, the garment is still cozy, thanks to the affordable Crystal Palace mohair-blend yarn. The contrast trim and embellishment need just tiny amounts of yardage, tooโ€”one 25g skein of Kidsilk Haze is enough to trim two sweaters (sizes XS-L). Bust the stash, save your cash!

Variant instructions are included for three-quarter length sleeves, as well as short-row bust shaping for shapelier ladies. Also included are instructions for making flowers and leaves for the corsage decorationโ€”although you may just want to chain-stitch a big olโ€™ script initial there using the contrast-color yarn for the full Laverne & Shirley effect.
