Siesta Key Tee is inspired by the beautiful beach Siesta Key on the Floridian west coast. The tee is designed to be worn during summer time and can preferably be knitted in cool fibers like cotton, bamboo or linen. The garment is knitted up quickly using minimal yardage.

The tee is knitted top down with a provisional cast on. After finishing the lace the sleeve seam is created an the tee is knitted in a round. The neck line is finished with an applied icord bind off.

Thank you to my fabulous test knitters Estetiina, Lilp00bear, Maritas Maskor, gia058, Signe39 and Snygging!

The tee is designed to fit bust sizes: (75-80, 85-90, 95-100, 105-110 and 115-120)cm’s.
