Notes

A sweet little Summer tee in an equally sweet cotton/linen blend yarn. What’s not to love?

Knit per the pattern until the waist. I did the decreases as instructed, but decided to skip the increases after trying it on. I don’t think the hem would work particularly well with this yarn (which is so soft and loose) and did a simple 2x2 rib before binding off.

Capital-L-Love the final result. The yarn is a dream - a discontinued dream, sadly, so I plan on scooping up some destashes while I can. (It’s not as glossy/shiny as the photos suggest - actually, a dusty blue with a strand of gray running through it for a nice marled effect.) The pattern is equally perfect - simple, adorable and, in a fun little twist, reversible.
