Sunny T-shirt

This pattern is available for £3.80 GBP buy it now

New version of the pattern added on June 1st, 2016.

Light and lacy, Sunny T-shirt is quick to knit - and easier than it looks. It has a seamless, top-down construction, with yoke increases incorporated in the stitch pattern and optional short rows used to raise the back of the neck. You can make the sleeves long or short - the pattern contains instructions for both options. The neck is finished with horizontal rib that is stretchy and works well with lace.

The adult version is available here: Sunny.
