Wahine is a top down, seamless knit with delicate short lace sleeves.
The pattern is written in 14 sizes (72.5cm to 137.5cm high chest circumference) and 4 yarn weights (DK, Light Worsted, Heavy Worsted and Bulky).
Wahine is slim fitting through the chest; there is no ease built into this pattern…however with 14 different sizes, it is easy to go down one size for figure hugging negative ease, or upsize to a more relaxed, casual fit.

The garment features full lace sleeves, which are in both charted and written format.

Wahine is the adult interpretation of Hine – a beautiful short sleeved layering piece for young girls.
