A deep pool of clear cold water, dappled by sunlight and rippled by a soft breeze, is just one of the cooling visuals I imagine when my internal thermostat threatens a meltdown. As water slides over smooth stones, so the Still Waters Tee skims the body, its lacy side panels providing their own refreshing breeze. The 100% linen fiber wicks away moisture, drapes beautifully, and softens sublimely with wear. Alternative fiber blends such as sport weight cotton and linen, silk and linen, or bamboo and cotton would be good substitutes.
Tee is worked in one piece in the round from the bottom hem up to the armholes. From there, it is divided and worked back and forth in two separate pieces for the Front, Back, and short sleeves. The pieces are seamed at the shoulders and underarms to finish. There is no body shaping but the deep Pebble Lace border relaxes when blocked, resulting in a wider finished hip measurement. Lace instructions are provided in both written row-by-row and chart formats.
