This t-shirt is worked from the top down in one seamless piece with raglan shaped sleeves. Because of the top-down construction, the garment can be tried on and custom fit in its length and overall fit. The easy lace pattern adds a really pretty touch to the t-shirt. This t-shirt is a great project for a first-time lace knitter.

Please Note: When you first knit the t-shirt, without the ribbing, the neckline may appear too large, however when you knit the neckline ribbing onto the t-shirt, it really tightens up the neckline and it will get smaller!

Errata:
An updated pattern will be posted, however, in the meantime, here is the revised neckline ribbing instructions:
