The Daisy Girl tee is a dreamy summer knit. This tee is full of texture and color with an easy-to-wear fit. Chains of daisy stitches are used to create neat little stripes on the body and yoke. Knit seamlessly from the bottom up, you will love watching the Daisy Girl tee grow on your needles. Use your favorite minis skeins to add drama to the yoke, or keep it simple with just one color. Like an empty garden bed ready to be planted, this pattern is full of possibilities.
