Sunny is a stylish short-sleeved lace tee, which can be dressed up or down. It has a seamless, top-down construction, with short rows used to raise the back of the neck, and yoke increases incorporated in the stitch pattern. Optional waist shaping is achieved simply by changing needle size, and body length can be easily adjusted. Ostrich Plumes lace used in the pattern is easier to knit than it looks: you only work the lace every 4th row - the remaining rows are plain stockinette stitch.

Finished bust circumference:
75 (80, 85, 90, 96, 102, 105, 112, 119) cm/ 29.5 (31.5, 33.5, 35.5, 37.75, 40.25, 41.5, 44, 46.75) in.

Gauge

Gauges vary for different sizes (see Pattern notes).
