Introducing Uncloudy Skies, a simply shaped, long sleeve tee with an elegant back-dipping neckline. Its sleeves and lower bodice are worked in the wonderfully floral Lace Entrelac, an easily memorized 13 stitch by 12 row repeat. I-cord bands trim its edges. This design is worked top down, extending straight and seamlessly from underarms to hemline, with lace flaring slightly at its lower bodice. Top-down sleeves are worked flat and set in. You’ll find all lace shaping of the sleeves charted – making this a perfect project for knitters of all levels. Enjoy!
